Locomotion study. Professor Robert Full studies the movement of a tokay gecko (Gekko gecko) on a door in his laboratory. Geckos climb walls using ridges and tiny hairs on their feet. This is being done to aid the development of new robots with novel forms of locomotion for traversing difficult and varied terrain. Full works at the University of California at Berkeley, California, USA.
