adhesive carpet
Society / Technology

A type of carpet designed to make the floors of weightless areas easier to walk on. Called "theater carpet" by some, due to the sensation of sticky movie theater floors, a sensation also found in adhesive carpet. It is able to detect the shifting body weight of a walker as they move, and also allows for the level of adhesiveness to be adjusted. Works with all types of footwear. Developed at the beginning of the 21st century by a carpet manufacturer, it has since come into use in a number of places, such as spaceships and weightless areas of spaceports.
