Going for the Sweep December 11, 2007

Posted by goodmind in Task Unification.

the sweep

We’ll confess up front, we do not practice due diligence when it comes to maintaining a clean office carpet.  It’s not laziness, it’s just that our two options, the vacuum and the broom, can’t get the job done.  That’s why we were pretty excited when we came across this instance of Task Unification on Yanko Design;

“Vacuums are great at picking up fine dust but suck horribly at bigger pieces of trash. Can we say clog anyone? Of course brooms have their caveat too. They’re great at moving big pieces of litter but forget about dirt and pet hair. Why not combine the two into a Vacuum Broom?”

This carpet cleaning solution is even more exciting when we consider its potential applications outside of the home.  Say the Red Sox are going for the sweep against the Yankees at Fenway.  Given the hostile environment (and the low collective IQ of the Nation), the Vacuum Broom is the perfect game day accessory.  It’s a subtle symbol of how you can go for the sweep, but still suck big time.
