Wall-Climbing Robots: Real Life Crazy Climbers

by Paul Strauss

We’re not really sure why anyone would go through the trouble of building humanoid wall-climbing robots like these ones. There are certainly faster ways to scale a wall. Maybe they made them just so bloggers like me would write about them? Who knows?

These three guys have been gradually climbing up and down a 15-minute wall in 20-minute intervals for more than half a year. Again, for no particular reason from what I can tell, except to entertain us.

The whole mechanic reminds me of the classic arcade game Crazy Climber. All they need is someone dropping flower pots, some windows that close on their hands, and a condor dropping eggs and poop on the climbers, and they’d be all set.
