This Robots Pulls up to 2,000 Times Its Weight! It is tiny like an insect and like many insects they can control massive amounts of weight in comparison to their weight. We need to see this technology applied to dragsters, say goodbye to wheel slip.

 “The super-strong bots – built by mechanical engineers at Stanford University in California – will be presented next month at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation in Seattle, Washington.

The secret is in the adhesives on the robots’ feet. Their design is inspired by geckos, which have climbing skills that are legendary in the animal kingdom. The adhesives are covered in minute rubber spikes that grip firmly onto the wall as the robot climbs. When pressure is applied, the spikes bend, increasing their surface area and thus their stickiness. When the robot picks its foot back up, the spikes straighten out again and detach easily.”
