He's Climbin' In Your Windows: College Students Demonstrate Vacuum-Powered Wall Climbing Gloves

June 12, 2012

This is a video of Utah State University's 'Ascending Aggies' demonstrating the latest incarnation of their vacuum-powered wall-climbing gloves. As you'll see from watching, they work pretty damn well. Plus are near silent. Kidding, they sound like a jet taking off on an aircraft carrier. So much for stealth. "BWAHAHAHAHAHA!" Jesus -- go easy on them Spiderman, they're just college students.

Hit the jump for two videos from different angles of a student scaling a brick wall with the things.

Thanks to Bradley B, who climbs walls the old fashioned way: with a grappling hook like a ninja.
