Those crazy Japanese are at it again, fighting bacteria every chance they get, every way they can, hilarity ensuing effortlessly.

The FOKI floor cleaning shoes forget all about nature’s intended use of our hands, as implement wielding wonders of dexterity. I imagine it would take about a billion steps to clean the average room with these, and the average human would slip and fall on a third of those steps, but they do have twin rotary cleaners under each step that looks like they’ve got some anti-bacterial UV action going.

Being cordless helps, as you’ll be doing enough tripping without the shoes themselves getting in the way, and a LED display indicated battery levels – in other words, in lets you know how many eternities have passed since you started sweeping the floor with your feet.
