Gecko grip material! Yes, again!

Gangsta geckoThe longer you follow science and tech news, the more you start noticing the stories that resurface time and time again in slightly different forms. Point in case: OMG new material works on same principle as gecko feet but is ten times stickier!!1

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not refuting the science. I’m just frustrated by the perpetual teasing… I don’t want to hear about it until I can schlepp on out to my nearest shoe-shop and buy trainers that’ll let me walk up and down the sides of buildings, OK? [original LOL-free image by Mataparda]
