Device for cleaning carpets that picks up dirt using the electrostatic charge generated dragging it back and forth (like shuffling your feet).

       Probably a framing problem, tried a new link.

       As reensure points out, this has been baked for a while. A lot of elderly people I know have one of these (or something simmilar) stuffed away in a cupboard somewhere.

       Gents, you missed a small point: what's stuffed away in grandmas closet is a carpet sweeper which uses wheels to turn brushes. I'm proposing using the static electricty that builds up on carpets to do the work. My original thought was to use the static potential to actually run the motor but I know that harnassing this is very difficult; so instead I was thinking about using static to attract the dirt (just run your finger over that CRT you're sitting in fron of)...

       This is baked as an ionizer. It takes all the dirt in the air and puts it on your walls, using electrostatic energy.
