    I want to know if is possible to do gloves to let you stick to the walls. Or if we can design something.

    Well, there was an interesting article I've read few years ago.. I believe it was this one: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-news/3322870/Gecko-lizards-inspire-Spiderman-gloves.html

    Notice how it says that the prototype could be available in 3 years, and the article was written in 2008 xD!
    So there might be something somewhere getting developed on that subject. But I'm not so well informed, last thing I heard regarding spidey-climbing is that article. And, as far as I know (please do correct me if I'm wrong), the closest comercially available thing to it is this: http://geckodirect.com.au/gecko-xtra-grip-nitrile-coated-gloves/ :woot:
    But the 'gecko idea' is definitely something worth looking into :)

    There is already a thread for this, "Gloves that let you stick to walls". Take a look there.
