Yes, Please

Scientist at Cornell have created a palm sized device that could one day allow people to stick to and climb walls just as easily as walking


Just like Spider-Man, you ask?

Fuck yes, just like Spider-Man, we say.

The device pumps water through tiny, micron wide holes in a metal plate, using the power of surface tension to create adhesion. And eventually, you’ll be able to use a palm sized one to climb buildings, which is sweet. Now if we can get somebody working on making high-tensile web shooters a reality, we can really start striking fear in the hearts of muggers everywhere.
