Electric Rug Puts Heat on Your Feet

Some bad news today for slipper fans -- someone has finally invented the electric carpet. Panasonic's new heated floor covering is like an electric blanket you stand on and is available in a variety of colors, patterns and materials. It can be cranked all the way up to 114 degrees and is even stain-resistant. We're hoping it's also electrocution-resistant, just in case Fido tries to test that claim. Panasonic says there are also plans to offer heated wood surfaces in the future.

Unfortunately, for now, this technological wonder appears to only be available in Japan. But really, how long can a piece of home gadgetry this absurd stay out of the pages of SkyMall?
