Car Drives on Walls or Ceiling using internal Vacuum

at 3:22 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets, Insane Equipment, Toy Hacks


This car that drives on walls using a vacuum is a very cool concept. By using a internal vacuum pump this car can stick the a wall or ceiling and still have enough slippage that the wheels can drive it around. I am sure the designers had to work on the optimal level of vacuum for a long time. Too much and it would not move with the wheels and too little would have it falling off with even the slightest variation in the wall. I have not seen a DIY version of this product but I can imagine some very fun things that could be done including floor to wall to ceiling transitions. This could be achieved by having multiple vacuum and drive faces on a cube like object. If you like cool RC cars don’t forget the Hydrogen Fuel Cell RC Car that we featured in the past.

    It will be better if the car create less noise and a built in camera in it.
