Spiderman Becomes a Reality at The University of Manchester

Abstract:
Scientists at The University of Manchester have developed a new type of adhesive, which mimics the mechanism employed by geckos to climb surfaces, including glass ceilings. Researchers within the newly opened Manchester Centre for Mesoscience and Nanotechnology at the University have been working on the new adhesive since 2001, after learning the mechanism of gecko's climbing skills from biophysicists.
