Apprentice
I've been waiting for so long for someone to come up with a design for this. There's no more complaining about back problems. Matthias Lange designed the foot-dustpan, that is designed to be attachable to the foot, so you can avoid bending down.
Now we only need to learn a safe and elegant way to pour the dust in the bin with an acrobatic movement, and we're ready to sweep.

Implications - For those of you who think this task still seems a bit advanced, this foot-dustpan is here to help! Even people who admit to being lazy in the cleaning department are going to fall in love with this spiffy gadget. Clearly -- and cleanly -- the foot-dustpan by Matthias Lange is the way to go!
