Step aside Rumba because the next big trend in cleaning tech could be these vacuume shoes.
I've been cleaning my floors with paper towels on my feet since college, so this seemed like a logical evolution.
Although the 70s disco shoes don't exactly scream high tech because they're not, the idea for these ecology shoes will be as a result of a company-wide competition to foster innovation at Benzo, the Japanese are auto parts manufacturer.
The finalist of the competition will then be selected to exhibit at CES.
At the heel is a small pedal connected to gears.
The heel to toe motion of each step powers the gears which allows the vacuum nozzle at the front to inhale as the toe comes down.
The dirt is then collected in this mini dustbin compartment near the nozzle.
And while they do in fact vacuum, it's one crumb at a time.
And you'd have to moonwalk back and forth across your entire living room for a full day to do the job.
The way we ever see this brushing shoes in the wild that's to be seen.
The creator of the shoes says he makes shoes to pursue in the next fives years but don't hold your wrath.
