Remora adhesive disk3

3-D rapid prototypes of an enlarged lamella (in hand) and mineralized tissue within a remora adhesive disk (on table). Researchers at Georgia Tech plan to create an engineered reversible adhesive inspired by the remora that could be used to create pain- and residue-free bandages, attach sensors to objects in aquatic or military reconnaissance environments, replace surgical clamps, and help robots climb.
