Are you too lazy to brush off your shoes on the entry mat of your or others’ house? Well, here is something to save you from the effort. This is a gadget which has taken the shape of an entry rug which sucks all dirt that is sticking in your shoes before you enter that place. Just a few steps on it and all the dirt gets pulled from your shoe’s sole. However you need to pay a hefty amount of five thousand dollars for the rug.
“The mat was developed by Paionia Furyokuki and its surface is perforated with valves that are only opened as they’re stepped on. So as someone walks across the mat, it activates what are essentially a series of little vacuums that suck the dirt and debris off the sole of the shoe, and then into an external unit where it can be later disposed of.”
There are places where you can’t really stop to wipe off the dirt every time you walk into a clean and closed space. All those high-traffic industrial spaces which see dirt and mud at all times can think of being clean for once with these entry rugs or mats. Though the price is a deterrent as not many people would shell such an exorbitant amount just for the sake of wiping shoe’s dirt, we can only hope it gets cheaper and we can see more of these.
