One Step Closer To A Real-life Spider-Man With The Vacuum Wall-Climber! - Video

OK, so in reality this is not quite the super-agile wall crawling that everyone's favourite neighbourhood Spider-Man is known for, but it is a guy climbing a brick wall unaided apart from his new invention - The "Vacuum Wall-Climber".

A team of engineering students from Utah State University – going by the name The Ascending Angels – have built this vacuum-powered backpack which lets its wearer ascend walls a la Spider-Man.

Not exactly stealthy but you could see a use in emergency rescue situation or the like.
