Could Geckos give the answer to Spider-Man?

Have you ever wanted to walk up walls or across ceilings like Spider-Man?

Gecko Tape may be the way to do it. The tape is a material covered with nanoscopic hairs that mimic those found on the feet of gecko lizards. These millions of tiny, flexible hairs exert van der Waals forces that provide a powerful adhesive effect. Applications include underwater and space station uses, as well as Spider-Man suits!
