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.
Remote controlled race cars are pretty much a dime-a-dozen these days, so I’m always happy to come across one that’s a little left of center.
Contrary to its name, the Air Hog Zero Gravity Micro R/C car does not defy gravity.
The one-trick-pony of a robot does one thing and one thing only – it climbs windows. Action Product’s Climb@tron is a two-legged toy robot that uses special suction cups to let it ascend windows and other smooth surfaces.
Just stick the little 4-inch tall ‘bot on your window, switch it on, and it’ll automatically walk towards the ceiling (or whatever direction you point it in).
Next time you’re climbing a flight of stairs, be sure to watch your step. You never know if they might be pulled out from under you.
The disappearing staircase is the brainchild of industrial designer Aaron Tang.
An Isreali defense manufacturer today revealed their new portable robot that’s capable of going into dangerous war zones and taking down enemies on its own (with the aid of a wireless remote control and built-in video camera).
I’m having enough trouble just climbing skyscrapers on foot in the Xbox 360 action-shooter Crackdown. This amazing clip by gaming die hard 007craft shows off how you can actually climb an Agency Tower while driving in an SUV.
Autonomous Solutions has developed a robot, known as Chaos, specifically for use in hazardous situations too dangerous for human personnel. The robot has a unique 4-tread design that lets it maneuver through difficult environments.
According to Autonomous, Chaos is made for challenging jobs like explosive disposal, search and rescue, hauling gear and “other dull, dirty or dangerous tasks.”
