Man Climbs Building With DIY Vacuum Gloves

July 24, 2009

This is a video of inventor Jem Stansfield climbing the exterior of a BBC building to show off a pair of vacuum gloves he made out of an old vacuum. Amazingly, he gets to the top, but I question how much assistance he got from the rope holder. Also, if those gloves are that strong and made out of a crappy old vacuum, imagine Dyson-powered vacuum gloves. It would suck the paint off a building! And, God willing, I would eat those paint chips.

Thanks to Ross, who once made vacuum boots but didn't tie them tight enough and plummeted eight stories.

  • Neither the bag
    nor the suction power in these devices is manually manipulated.
    Therefore, across all the vacuum packed items you produce, work is
    uniformly done. There is practically no chance for error if your first
    bag is correctly done since conditions will be the same and controlled
    by the machine for all the succeeding bags. With less chance for
    mistakes, it is possible to round up things on or ahead of time.
