I was looking at men at work in the office the other day and was surprised at how easy they were able to cut the carpet to fit the desired space.
Did you notice that gadgets are usually designed for the right-handed by default? However, there are gadgets that are designed for both left- and right-handed users.
Take the carpet cutter from MartorUSA.com for instance. This carpet cutter is not only ergonomically-designed for heavy duty work, it also comes with a safety feature, the Maxtor's "Smart Knife technology". It allows the blade to automatically retract when the blade loses contact with the material being cut. The blade will still retract EVEN IF the user tries to override the safety system by leaving the slider in the forward position. How cool and safe is that!
