Mechanical engineers at Stanford University have developed a substance that mimics gecko toes. Not just for scaling walls in Spiderman-like fashion, the adhesive could help clean up space debris and be used on automobile assembly lines.CNET's Sumi Das visits the research lab where it was created to learn how it works.
A mission to learn about the sex life of geckos in orbit took a bad turn when what should have been heaven in space turned into a reptilian tragedy.
The product-design firm will be put to work on some of Google's most "cutting edge" projects.
Researchers at the University of Akron have done some experiments to see how geckos fare against Teflon — with surprising results.
This upcoming iPhone 6/6 Plus case incorporates NanoSuction material that emulates the adhesive qualities of gecko feet to stick to any flat surface.
The Blood Sport Kickstarter was suspended today, after a week of collecting money to fund a crazy idea involving donating blood while playing video games. Was it a bio-hazard? An unauthorized blood donation site? Or perhaps Kickstarter's fear of blood?
Microsoft is no longer the foe. Mozilla CTO Andreas Gal is using the Web to try to force Android and iOS to become more open. He knows Mozilla's Firefox OS is in for a long battle, though.
Amazon isn't the only tech giant experimenting with drones. Google has unveiled Project Wing, which is focusing its efforts on disaster relief, at least for now.
Whoever becomes Mozilla's permanent boss must figure out how to promote the Firefox technology, decide whether reliance on Google is a good thing, and set the right balance between idealism and pragmatism.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has been driven up a wall -- a vertical glass wall -- with new tech inspired by geckos (and probably Stan Lee).
