Scroll Carpet Revisited

A plush carpet that rolls like a scroll.

Carpeting presents a number of problems that hard-surfaced floors do not. However, carpet is much more warm and comfortable. Therefore, a scrolled long section of carpet, several meters in length and shoulder-width, awaits your cold morning feet. Nestling your feet into the cleavage and shuffling across the floor unravels the forward roll beneath your feet. At the end of each roll there is a hard plastic pivot point, with which to turn the now counterbalanced roll of carpeting in the desired direction with ease.

       would you prefer I ignore it the next time?
po, Feb 26 2013
  

       That would be the least significant thing to do. It probably wouldn't occur to me to prefer it.

       you're weird! I like weird but I prefer my responses to be transparent.

       Transparency on the Internet, or telephony of any kind is being in the same room as the other person, and only then is the separtion the most clear, but at the same time the least relevant.   

       Almost losing sight of the scroll carpet. Easily constructed by bordering the length edges with short segments, with springs joining each one under tension . _- _
