New-and-improved gecko-inspired adhesive sticks to more surfaces

 According to its creators at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, it could be used to hang objects weighing up to 700 pounds (318 kg) on smooth surfaces such as glass. Now, however, they've announced a new version that also works on rough surfaces, like drywall and wood.

Like the original Geckskin, this version differs from other gecko-inspired adhesives, in that it does not replicate the microscopic hair-like setae that are found on the underside of the lizards' feet.
