Spider-Man suit 'by 2017'
A fully-working prototype of a suit that would enable people to climb walls and sling webs like comic book hero Spider-Man could be just ten years away.
Italian researchers say they have developed a new method for creating a surface-gripping material that mimics "spider silk" and imitates carbon nanotubes.
Stefano Mezzasalma at the University of Trieste said: "The first prototype of a Spiderman suit might be ready in a decade or so."
