Yes, but, if the adhesive was so strong that you would get stuck to the floor, wouldn't you also get stuck to the wall? Because, what we are saying, is that it wouldn't take much pull to detach the adhesive from the surface, so it wouldn't be that hard to walk normally.

The tape I was talking about uses cohesion of the fluid between the two surfaces. when you break the cohesive force it will release.

Gecko tape only sticks when its pulled along the surface. If you were holding onto the side of the building then you'd stick, because the force is acting in the same direction as the plane of the surface. If you then pushed away from the wall, the force would be applied perpendicular to the surface, the material would lose its 'grip' and you'd fall. It'd be a nice to master that method of climbing, but upside down surfaces would be next to impossible and it'd tire you out too quickly. We're not Geckos

maybe do some resaerch and gecko's have layers of skin that they use but we dont want to be gecko's now spider's have hairs that hook into every little crevis it can or it either makes static cling cuz the spiders arte so small

Yes, you need to be able to control the stickyness because you need enough force to hold up your whole body, yet little enough to where you can actually move your hand when your climbing so you don't have to spend an hour trying to climb up one wall. Or maybe something with minimal force but you'd have to climb fast or you'd fall.

I know people are mainly focused on the web formula because that is the biggest problem, but wouldn't it be better to work on everything at once? Then we would be an army of Spider-men!!! Muhahahahaha!

But seriously, has any thought about this??
i dont know how it would work but mabey you could find a way to get the atoms in the glove enough electricity to stick to other atoms

That would appear to work, but you would have to wear some kind of insulator glove under that, and it could be quite cumbersome. Another thing is if the charge was strong enough to hold your weight to a ceiling, it would take tremedous force to pull your hand away. You would have to find a way to turn the charge on and off for different gloves and boots at your command without touching them. I thought of having a timed switch that would automatically open and close the circuit in each section (the circuit that opened would have a bypass that would close simultaneously, keeping the electric flow), but short circuiting a kind of device like this could be very dangerous, not to mention that you would have to time your crawing exactly right to get anywhere and not fall and hurt yourself or get stuck to the wall.

I tried it on the outside my house, but this is definitely not for scaling buildings!

Wait you guys why don't you guys use surface tension to cling to walls? You could have a glove that has plates on it that when you activate the trigger a very small amount of water will come out of the holes of the plates on the glove and it will create surface tension so you could stick to walls

You know what is ironic though. The only animal that has spider sense is a fly.

The Science Man, I posted a link to something like that a while ago, but I don't think anyone read it.

I think the article I posted said it increased adhesion strength by a factor of 30.

Mabe so but it depends on the about of holes in the plates and how small they are .

I know how to make gloves that get you to stick to walls, it's simple. Expensive. And worth it. Spidey has been my favorite hero forever, so I spent week after week studying how to become him. I've come up with several shooters, and I'm getting smaller and smaller each time. The webs are the hardest part.

As for the gloves that can get you up a wall, that's the simplest. Just use gecko tape! Gecko tape uses carbon nanotubes, which take advantage of the Van der Waals force, that's the same force that keeps spiders and geckos on a wall, even when it's wet. This gecko tape is hard to come by, but it is reusable (it can be used thousands of times over again), and it has enough strength to hold up a full grown adult with some extra bulk.

BUT it's expensive! And the nanotubes sometimes have the tendency to break off, that becomes a pain when you're 3 floors up a wall...

The best part is that the nanotubes also rely on angle. So if you move your hands up and the tubes are then perfectly horizontal, you can easily take the tape off. Hold it at the proper angle and the tape keeps you on the wall. I suggest you practice, and DO NOT jump from building to building as you may be upset with the results.

I've had fun with this, I bet my bottom buck you will too.

Fink, you NEED to tell us where to get it PLEAASEE T^T I've been searching the internet for the last 2 hours for it, and have found nothing but news reports and crap like that. If you could give us a link, or tell us where to go, that would make you my bestest of online friends. PLEEEAAAAASSSSeEEEEEE WITH A CHERRY AND WHIPPED CREAM AND SPRINKLES AND CHOCOLATE SYRUP ON TOP?!?!?!?!

No animal has this spidey sense they have hairs on them that are really sensitive and they can feel an object moving towards them with air current

Sorry for the late reply, I'm on vacation and the only time I get to go online is when I visit an internet cafe.

Anyways, as to where I got the gecko tape... I made it. With a lot of help xD I had to visit a college lab and a professor, and my best friend helped me make it. We had to study gecko's feet, and what the online articles had to say about it. The process to make it was the costly part, but the materials aren't super expensive. Here's a link to where we had to get the nanotubes: http://www.nanoshel.com/buy-nanotubes.php

You need pure graphene, your can't use graphite from a pencil. Graphite isn't pure graphene. You need something like diamonds (not cheap), or pure coal (cheap).

I may be young, but I've studied physics for as long as I can remember, my dad used to work for NASA as an astrophysicist, so he got me real interested in physics. That's how I came up with my ideas with the carbon nanotubes and pressurized web shooters. I won't get into anything but my gloves on this thread, since this thread is about the gloves.

Oh, and if you want to make a carbon nanotube based tape, get ready to pay up . And I suggest you make the back of the tape thin, that way it requires less pressure to get you to stick to a wall, and less effort to get your hands off the wall.

That's not actual gecko tape, look at the details.
