If you could do the same thing in a suet as they did to mack a really cool toy or hallowing costume.
I can’t believe that something can withstand the temputures of space.
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
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!!
I think that it is awesome that they made a gecko-like robot that can climb stuff! I wish I could have one!
It is so amazing how it can climb walls yet still avoid obstacles!!!
