Monday February 18, 2008
For people who want to clean their floors in the dark - a vacuum cleaner with headlights. Electrolux has been assigned a US patent (No. 7,328,479) for a light on a cleaning attachment, which can illuminate dust, dirt or debris in dark corners or under furniture.

The light is on the attachment, not the main vacuum body, and it's powered off both automatically and on a delay relative to vacuum power-off.
