How gecko adhesion with 'wall' structure works

How gecko adhesion with 'wall' structure works

The slightest bit of shear tension makes gecko adhesion surfaces grip, and the release of that same tension makes them let go. The same gripping surfaces can pick up objects of all shapes, sizes, and materials with the exception of Teflon and other non-stick surfaces. Credit: Georgia Tech / Varenberg lab
