Ventooz Wall Crawler

It’s just another Tuesday. Maybe you’ve just completed some project, or at the least some portion of one, and you get up to go get some water and stretch the legs. You look out the window of your 30 story building and out of nowhere a car moves its way over a window. The window cleaner has a new ride. It is called the Ventooz.

Inspired partly by a Disney project, this wall climbing drone concept dreamt up by Charles Bombardier and Juan Garcia Mansilla is powered by something you wouldn’t initially expect – a pair of fans. Two super powerful turbines set on the front and rear of the vehicle are fueled by a hydrogen cell that provide a tremendous downward force that allows the driver to navigate the vehicle up the sides of buildings, dams, or really whatever they please. For extra security, the tires are made up of a series of grippy suction cups that grip to glass and cement like an octopus grabs onto a rock or unlucky shellfish. Who knows how realistic a concept like this really is, but if anything like this ever gets built you can be sure we’ll be lining up to get one ourselves. [H/T: Wired]
