Is Traffic Driving Up the Wall


Everyone has come to that point when driving that Google Maps has told you that you’re in the middle of a building. It has been a problem for me in the past, but with the Ventooz, I feel it’s going to be a more accurate representation of my position. Designed for Disney’s wall climbing robot, Vertigo, the Ventooz is a scaled up version that is built for some high speed, high altitude wall climbing.

The vehicle features suction cup covered wheels and four powerful fans that can point in any direction and propel the vehicle downwards, enabling it to stick to walls. For anyone who suffers from vertigo, I can assure you; this vehicle will climb a building’s wall so quick you won’t even get a chance to feel ill. As Juan Garcia Mansilla says, “just strap on the 4- point harness and up you go!” I guess that’s easier said than done Juan, but for any of you adrenaline junkies out there, this could be your next challenge.
