    Looks like it has tiny pins or hooks on each foot for rough surface and it looks like suction cups on that flat surface. The hooks or pins work the same as the hairs on a bugs legs i would imagine.

    Claws, topology conformation, strain sensors in probably the legs or feet, and a tail to shift balance. Just like most tree-climbing critters...

    It is amazing … Is it a product or prototype?
    Still, if I see it climbing my wall I am gonna swat it!

    Easy, fairy brains. You just squeeze the little fairy head and wipe the goopy brains onto the bot toes. It's an old roboticist trick.
