    It’s also how I find furniture when walking while reading. (I multitask a lot)

  3. LOL! (And I concur on the “ouch” part.) This is why I move into a house, place the furniture, and NEVER MOVE IT AGAIN until I move out, even if it’s decades later. It’s not very “designerly”, but it’s much easier on the toes, shins, and profanity generator.

    Interestingly, although most gadgets eventually fail, I’ve noticed my furniture-finder works better than ever.

    I agree with ‘ouch’ My ‘pinkie toes’ are mutilated for life. It is really cumbersome wearing my steel-toed knee high construction boots all the time at 65yrs old in the home 😉
