While some creatures can traverse vertical and overhanging surfaces with the succor of sticky substances or suction, it is a have to to zoom the general vogue down to a subatomic stage to if reality be told be conscious how geckos seem to defy gravity. This video from the science documentary series Deep Ogle takes a dive into the subatomic world to illustrate how geckos can stroll on practically any floor due to the the millions of puny pads on their toes, which dangle electrons that sync up with the surfaces they touch. The brief also offers a brief explore at a Stanford College mission to create nanomaterials inspired by the improbable adhesive energy of gecko toes.
