A boy from Cambridge, England has managed to figure out a way to climb a brick wall with not much more than a couple of vacuum cleaners.

Using a pair of 1,400-watt vacuums he purchased at UK retailer Tesco, Hibiki Kono hooked them up to a couple of large suction pads, and proceeded to ascend a vertical surface with the contraption strapped to his back and arms.

As you can see from the video clip, Hibiki didn’t get too far up the wall, but we’re sure with a little persistence, he could climb anything he set his mind to – assuming there’s a long-enough power cord.
