Stickybot robotic lizard climbs on glass
Some of you might have seen this amazing robot on Good Morning America a few days ago. The Stickybot robotic lizard is modeled after the gecko, and is capable of climbing up glass surfaces with ease at a meter per second. The Pentagon is super interested. It could be a great robotic spy, after all. I guess it could also be used to watch people getting their freak on too.

This robot is such an excellent climber thanks to nano-scale hairs on it’s toes. In the future, they can no doubt make it resemble a gecko more closely, but he’s a pretty cute critter as he is. In time, they would make him move more naturally as well, though he does an impressive job already. You just have to keep in mind that it’s all fun and games until you see swarms of these things crawling all over Skyscrapers. And so it begins…
