Robotic Gecko, other things

Marky Cutkosky and colleagues at Stanford University created this gecko-like robot with sticky feet that can scamper up a wall.

Stickybot, developed by Mark Cutkosky and his team at Stanford University in California, has feet with synthetic setae made of an elastomer. These tiny polymer pads ensure a large area of contact between the feet and the wall, maximising the van der Waals stickiness.
