Man Scales Building With DIY Spiderman Gloves

UK TV presenter and inventor Jem Stansfield has recently used his very own vacuum powered invention to scale a London building.

The gloves were constructed using an everyday vacuum cleaner, and successfully saw the BBC host ascend the 120 feet height of London's White City building. The simple science behind the gloves shows just how achievable DIY Spiderman status is, but the BBC warns that it "should not be attempted or replicated".
