"Geckos" for climbers

Rock and mountain climbing equipment makes use of materials with the texture and qualities of a gecko's toe pads. These lizards are renowned for their ability to hold on to and traverse surfaces vertically or even upside down. They are effective on walls, ceilings, glass or any other smooth surface. With the application of nano-material to special boots and gloves, humans can also grip any surface which makes many extreme sports and other types of entertainment safer and more widely accessible.

henry Ive seen a video about this somewhere where someone used this technology to mount security cameras on walls, i definitely this this technology will be advanced enough to hold humans by the estimated time. 06 Feb 2019
DJ DRAGON Weight is a huge problem. The texture and quality may be possible, but the abilities that come with it are impossible. Geckos can climb so well because they are light and the good grippers can withstand them. Humans, however, are too heavy to be able to climb buildings like that. 06 Feb 2019
