How a Fly Sticks to the Wall

Have a look at the new site.

Contextualising my work on hooks, let me say that the end goal is to solve the age old question, how do insects walk on walls and windows and the ceiling?  This is where future work lies, the near future.  Current MEM technology exists only ion the form of micron thick layered structures, but soon we will be manufacturing structures at this scale.

My research gave rise to a product mimicking the burdock hook, but what really is of interest lies in the depths of part 2, the imaging of tarsii.  If they weren’t so difficult to draw on solidworks I would be way ahead.
