Many people have succeeded and failed trying to be just like Spiderman scaling vertical walls and ceilings at ease. Now here comes Jem Stansfield, a scientist who invented this device called ‘Spiderman’ Vacuum Gloves which is made of two improvised vacuum cleaners bought at a supermarket.

Obviously he has done his homework and his prior knowledge of vacuum cleaners certainly helped due to his keen interest in pushing household electrical appliances to their limits. Even the shape and type of material of the suction pads had to be considered carefully in order for it to work as desired.


The two vacuum cleaners were attached to suction pads which acted as arm extensions for scaling the vertical wall. He managed to make it to the top of the building though, but not without help of the safety harness that kept him in place when the device failed during the climb.
