Kid makes Spiderman climber gadget

Kid makes Spiderman climber gadget

SCHOOLBOY Hibiki Kono climbs a sheer brick wall after turning himself into Spiderman – with the help of two £14.98 Tesco Value vacuum cleaners. Clever Hibiki, 13, made his incredible climbing machine in school technology lessons. The lad, who is a big fan of the superhero, spent five months designing and making the gadget. He attached two giant suckerpads to the 1,400-watt cleaners – and uses the vacuum suction to grip the wall and support his weight.
