Vacuum goggles

A pair of VR goggles that facilitate vacuuming the house, they display a normal view of your dirty carpet with the aid of two small cameras mounted over the eyes. While vacuuming, the head of the vacuum cleaner digitally paints the floor in your goggle view, so you know where you have cleaned and where you missed a spot.

       ask my wife about that

       <crickets chirping> so anyway...

       I rather like the idea with the camera attached to goggles. I get a very sci-fi-ish feel to it. And the visual would be cool too. Wear your astronaut suit and have a go at the floor. Make it fun instead of trugdery. Scare your soon to be ex-spouse when they come home from work early.   

       I give it a + yes bun.

       The alternative is to affix to the rear of your vaccum a bush through which drips, from the handy reservoir, a steady flow of white emulsion, such that all areas over which the vacuum has travelled are coated in a fresh layer of brilliant "Arctic Spume".

       So there is this system that can extract 'floor' from a natural 3D scene, pinpoint the current location, and paint a representation of the scene with a color.   

       This is essentially a robotic vacuum, with the motor and random-walk generator being you...

       I like it because sometimes after I put the vacuum cleaner away, I see a spot I missed! +

       As a second order alternative, cover the entire area with white powder and vacuum it up. (Capture cleaning powder, for instance.)

       No, I think [calum] actually intended that you attach a bush to the rear of your vacuum cleaner. It gives that outdoors, herby smell to the room.

       From the title, I was hoping this device would form an airtight seal around the upper face, and gently remove foreign particles from one's eyes.

       From the title, I was hoping this device would form an airtight seal around the upper face with a vacuum within, thereby causing the eyeballs to protrude past the eyelids, thus dispensing with the invasive clips otherwise necessary for the Ludovico technique.

       rename to AR vacuum goggles for my bun

       Just take a bag of sequins and explode it in the centre of the room. Then vacuum. Any areas you have missed will be indicated by the presence of sequins.
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 25 2010
  

       To save buying sequins, powder, or anything, just take the dust bag out of the hoover, and spread its contents over the floor before hoovering as normal. This will also save on having to empty the dust bag outside.
