Gecko, gecko adhesion surface, and method

The inset on the upper right illustrates how the gecko adhesion surface is made by pushing lab razor blades into a setting polymer. The razor blades are pulled out, leaving indentations and stretching some of the polymer up, resulting in flexible walls that produce the gecko adhesion effect. Credit: Georgia Tech / Varenberg lab
