Gecko” inspire a team in the development of gloves redirect you to the “Spider-Man




nspired by the way in which climbs the gecko or “Gecko” a team of Stanford University in the US to create a silicon plate hand-sized to allow the animal to a man weighing 70 kg climbing the glass wall like a character known as “Spider-Man” Spider Man.

The team had difficulty in trying to use the method of gecko adhesion to work on it more like a human hand size without any loss in performance.

The team used the same attractive forces and “disgusting” between the fingers molecules known as the forces of “van der Waals” Van Der Waals used by Gecko.

It uses Gecko to climb the glass filaments precision covering his toes to hold on firmly to surfaces, and with the force applied is very weak, but the multiplier effect of the bristles help him to do so.

In tests, enables climber weighs 70 kilograms of glass wall climbing vertical height of 3.6 meters successfully, using plates of silicon per space, including 140 square centimeters. Experienced climber and paintings hundreds of times without failure.

Earlier this year, the US Department of Defense agency showed Advanced Research Projects (DARPA) climb another device that allows a person to climb the large glass wall.

Earlier this year, the agency and the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Darpa introduced another device that allows a person to climb the wall of transparent glass, without disclosing the exact details of how climbing devised by the agency.
