'Spider-Boy' designs wall-climbing device

“Spider-Boy,” a 13-year-old English Spider-Man enthusiast, no longer dresses up in blue tights. Inspired by a school design technology class, Hibiki Kono built a wall-climbing device from two $23 vacuums. The video shows him climbing a wall at his school in Cambridge, but his mother won’t let him go too high and insists on a crash mat, in case his Spidey vacs get unplugged.

  1. I can remember climbing the walls in school, but didn’t need a vacuum cleaner.
