  1. I never knew we could create this type of technology already. It is great that they are making a spidey-suit warfare. It is also interesting that the gecko robot can stand the temperature and other things in space

  2. I can’t believe that now we have a robot wall scaling gecko to repair things while withstanding vacuums and air pressure. It’s a marvel in human engineering. Good luck, Geckobot! If you haven’t seen the video, please watch it!!
