 Ananova:
Spiderman suit breakthrough

Soldiers of the future could use special "Spiderman" suits to walk up sheer surfaces and even stick to the ceiling.

BAE Systems has developed a material that closely mimics the feet of a gecko lizard, which can scale vertical glass.

The research is still at an early stage but the firm said "infantry climbing suits" could be made out of the material, giving the troops gecko-like abilities.

A "government organisation" is also interested in using the material for a "particular covert application" connected to surveillance, according to a BAE Systems spokesman.

The gecko's foot is covered with tiny hairs, which are so small they effectively merge with molecules of things that they touch.

Dr Jeff Sargent, a research physicist at BAE Systems' Advanced Technology Centre in Bristol, said: "We wanted to mimic this ability.

"We have made a small amount of this material and we have demonstrated that it will stick on glass surfaces to demonstrate that it's got some potential.

"We have demonstrated we can do multiple attachments with this material - you can stick it down once and stick it down again. Having a Spiderman glove is a long way down the road, but in principle, you might have something like that."

Does it come in black, is so ill take 2 copies of that suit and what the He** ,ill take 20 more just to make sure i can have fun with a cople, and also in case i wreck a cople.

But seriously, dude how awsome would a suit like that be , it would meen that anyone could and can become a real life hero.

All we need now is a full body armor made out iron and maybe some sort or super soldier formula, and we might just have a great old superhero match up.

I bet you'd have to be in damn good shape to even scale over 15 feet of a wall, not to mention sticking to a ceiling.
