Creating a sticky situation

Abstract:
If humans ever gain the ability to crawl up walls like geckos, you can bet that it might have something to do with nanotechnology research.

Creating an artificial version of the tiny fibers on geckos' toes is just one research project among many at Nanosys in Palo Alto. Even if the product, dubbed ``nano fur,'' doesn't pan out in consumer products such as sneakers for walking up walls, Nanosys believes the technology will be an important tool for molecular researchers.
