    Here comes Gecko tape

    Related to an earlier post, the gecko's ability to stick to surfaces is being harnessed with technology. At Manchester University they have created a tape that shares the characteristics of the setae on the gecko's feet.

    "Spiderman is science fiction and will remain in comics," Geim told New Scientist. "But hopefully 'gecko-man' will become less science fiction and more a reality in the near future."
