Wall Climbing Robots – Stanfords StickyBot

The Stickbot has been introduced by Stanford. It weighs 300g and can climb glass at 4cm per second. Not bad for a robot trying to emulate a creature that can actually climb. It appears to work by having sticky toes which grip to the window when attached to the window at the right angle and speed. Check out one more video after the jump and also OhGizmo linked below for a more detailed explanation.
