Geckos are great

Earlier this year Keller Autumn from Lewis and Clark University gave a fantastic talk at Victoria University about the amazing properties of gecko’s feet, and how new adhesives are being developed based on these properties.  Well, it turns out geckos do pretty neat things with their tails as well – check out this presentation by one of Autumn’s collaborators, Robert Full from UC Berkeley.
