Robot baby shows how unclean your carpet is

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that the carpets in your home are massive depositories of dirt, allergens, and microbes.

As we walk around, a lot of those particles get kicked up into the air, which has led some scientists to wonder - how much of this stuff would a typical crawling baby inhale?

To get some answers, a team of US and Finnish researchers first needed a baby that could repeatedly crawl across pieces of carpet in a controlled air chamber environment.

So, they went ahead and built one.

I hate carpet and consider it nasty. I'm hardwood floor happy.
