Annotations This reference is a review of the progress in the field of bioinspired attachment pads over the last few years. It contributes to the field by summarizing and condensing a lot of information, drawing new ties and providing an excellent introduction to the field. It relates to my topic by discussing the recent progress made to mimic the characteristics of gecko adhesion as well as the shortfalls where science cannot compete yet with nature.
