Panasonic’s Electric Carpet Keeps Your Tootsies Warm

We’ve all heard of electric blankets, right? Japanese electronics giant Panasonic decided to take the basic concept and embed it into a carpet. That way, when you step on the rug, your feet stay nice and toasty. As a resident of a chilly Northern climate, living with hardwood floors, this really does seem like a bright idea.

Panasonic Heated Rug

Panasonic’s new heated rugs have a special radiant mat that sits beneath the surface of the carpet to keep things nice and warm. Your bare feet should have nothing to complain about with these rugs cranking out temperatures all the way up to about 114°F/46°C. But if that’s too hot for you, no worries – they are adjustable. In addition to a variety of fabric styles, they plan on offering wooden surfaces as well.

And you don’t need to worry about Rover taking a whiz on one of these and electrocuting himself. The heating elements are waterproof, and the rugs are designed for stain and germ resistance.
