uTug: Micro robot pulls 2000 times its weight

A 12 gram "micro tug" robot moves objects 2000 times its size on glass (steel objects without wheels or lubrication) enabled by gecko adhesives. This capability is comparable to a human dragging a blue whale. Even if the human was strong enough, their shoes would just slip making this impossible without this micro robot's special gecko inspired "shoes." Video Credit: Stanford
