Hey! This thing is still a Work in Progress. Files, instructions, and other stuff might change!
Gecko Foot Prototype
Published on August 12, 2012
Based on the research of Robert Full, this tiny sheet of plastic has even tinier hairs. Not tested yet, but based on proven research. A gecko's foot uses microscopic hairs to stick to surfaces by creating a kind of a super friction. This object does the same thing, only on a smaller scale. This sheet of plastic has 224 tiny spires, and is only a few square millimeters.
Use a Replicator for this. For more friction, it is best to scale it down by .5 and make the layer height .01. THis is just for better sticking though. Will be able to print and test anywhere in between 4 and 6 weeks. I promise I will test it, but until then, try printing it yourself.
