Gecko Tape

Abstract:
Geckos are renowned for their ability to stick to almost any surface with relative ease - they can hang from a tree branch by one toe, and combined, the bottoms of their feet could theoretically support the weight of a 250-pound man. But if their feet are so sticky, how come they aren't covered in dirt and sand by the end of the day? (Video)
