Vacuum Carpets

Carpets designed to look like there are vacuum cleaner tracks in it.

Imagine the thrill of your typical modern men and women when they get complimented on the impress of their cleanliness and they never lifted a finger. Oh, the sweet taste of victory! I can still be a space cadet and have dinner parties!

The idea is for carpet with carefully placed weaving angles and alternate fiber colors to resemble the optical effect of freshly vacuumed carpet at all times.

I think it could also help in clean places. I could have a break from my OCD desire to see carpet freshly vacuumed.

Also, children could lie to you when you tell them to vacuum and you could catch them by spotting obvious unvaccumed particulates on the carpet. You could scold them for lying, which is a good lesson to learn, and you could have a laugh about it because you designed the whole thing with this fresh looking carpet and those kids are pretty smart for seeing an opening.

       I'm kind of surprised that this isn't already a thing.   

       how about a big ol' vacuum pump to suck air (and dirt) down through the carpet.   

       when it stops working, blow the air (and dirt) the other way. open the windows first.

       I think this is brilliant. I would buy it too! Yes, for all of us lazy suckers. (As in vacuums, not any other meaning whatsoever.)

       Is there an attachment to make crop circles? I'd bun for that.

       You could lay your lawn with alternating light-dark variants of grass so it looks well manicured, even if it's a foot tall

       Can you make it for hair? Einstein tried for years. I don't own a vacuum or a carpet, although I have a lot of hair, but are vacuums supposed to leave tracks?

       Depends if you want a clean carpet or *be seen* to have a clean carpet. Such things are important if you have ever been a cleaner, for example. You get less accusations of laziness if they can physically see the evidence, even if it loos a bit weird.   

       However, this is for the domestic sloth, who wants to be seen as having a clean carpet without actually having a clean carpet. Which completes the set, I suppose.
