Kitchen Floor Conveyor

Conveyor belt floor never needs cleaning

Instead of traditional flooring materials, and industrial rubber-like material is used to create a huge conveyor belt that completely fills the floor area of the kitchen. The conveyor is powered by and electric motor in such a way that it can rotate, thus swapping the under surface with the top surface at the touch of a switch. A cleaning system, not unlike that found in a carwash, is located under the floor, scrubbing the soiled unseen surface clean while the freshly cleaned surface is in use.

Advanced models might utilize ultra-quiet electric motors and food mascerators on the drain to reduce maintenance and cleaning of the system.

       Briliant, just briliant... in fact if all your furniture was suspended from the ceiling it might even work...

       "Brilliant".
The word is B-R-I-L-L-I-A-N-T.

       Why not have inflatable/deflatable furniture that was attached to the floor and could be deflated and inflated as part of the wash cycle?

       Curse you, Rods! I was laying a trap for the mysterious pedant! I waited for hours by my phone-line in a stake-out. You blew my cover!!!
El Pedanto, I will not tolerate your wild pedantry!

       Bite me. ;-)

       I think that something like this would be full of bugs... I mean look at the automat!

       Incorporate a ridgid gratework much like the decks of industrial mezzanines. Wonderful commercial potential, this has.

       [RobertKidney]: It'd be easier to attach the appliances and furniture to the walls. Chairs could be suspended from the table.

       I saw this idea in a comic book once, though it was a room with a conveyor-belt carpet. I think it was owned by Scrooge McDuck, but I could quite possibly be mistaken.

       there's no need to actually suspend anything. Just put coasters on everything and prop-rods inbetween.

       I had to take care of my old mans' few hundred head of chickens for two weeks a while back. By the time he returned from his trip I had this exact idea all sketched out for the floor of the coop. A wind mill on the roof of the shed would move the floor every time the wind picked up and all the chicken shit would crack off as the rubber mat rolled over fifty gallon drums welded together as a rollers on the ends of the building, because I gotta tell you, if I never smell that much ammonia again as long as I live it will be to soon.
