Badass Students Creates A Backpack For Scaling Walls

While this may look like a scene from the New Amazing Spider-Man movie franchise I assure you this is just another case of student badassery.  The kick ass backpack that is helping the lucky student in the video above scale a building was created by the engineering team at Utah State University.
The Air Force recently went to these guys and asked them to build a PVAC, or Personal Vacuum Assisted Climber, capable of scaling a brick wall. The students came to call it an Ascending Aggie and they ended up winning a $100k development prize for this vacuum backpack.
Obviously because of the noise it creates this device isn’t going to be used for stealth mission impossible types of things. Nevertheless, it seems like a step in the right direction toward suction cup gloves. So suck it, Agent Ethan Hunt.
