I saw something today that I haven't seen before in my life: a truck that was transformed into a super-futuristic street cleaner. This thing had giant generators and made a constant hum as it cruised about the parking lot. Underneath the truck were two huge hoses that almost dragged on the ground and appeared to suck up any dirt and leaves, while the driver held an extra-long leaf blower out the window, like the ones gardeners use. I have to say that it cleaned up the gutters pretty nicely, but seriously looked like it was one of the "retro models" of street cleaners that will be used in the future, if you know what I mean.
