Slippers with spots
  [vote for,

For Granny going for a wee-hour wee-wee, big Daddy heading down the stairs for a midnight snack or Junior sleepwalking on the crosswalk, these house slippers with headlights are indispensable.

A small light is mounted in each toe powered by a battery in the sole. A switch turns on the light when it is dark and a foot is inserted. Models range from LED-shining Shufflers to the Aladdin Lamps with a high beam on each upturned toe.

       all my cats sleep on the stairs at night - its an accident waiting to happen. +1 for you.

       very nice idea... must be baked out there somewhere, surely?

       UB: Sounds like a winner.

       I'll be darned if I can find a link on this. Its an excelent idea.

       Would they be street-legal with turning signals and the whole bit?

       What a clever idea. I'm not one to regularly leave my bed in the small hours, but I have friends who would undoubtedly love a pair of these. Little ones for po's cats would also be cute

       hey [mad] that is inspired! thank you.
po, Nov 04 2002

       Sorry [FJ], but you're competing with 11-year-old girls with this idea. See link.

       As many supposed, it's really too obvious and practical an idea to not have been done before.
