This toy can fight gravity one suction cup step at a time.

The Geckobot, an upcoming toy from Thames & Kosmos, is a reptilian robot that can be assembled into a beast that can stick to surfaces and climb up walls.

Joseph Kaminski got an early look at the robot, which is due out this year, and took a shot at building the creature for the first "Joe and Tell" segment on Open_Tab.
