/ Suddenly, E12 seems feasable...
On a practical note, the students have mucked up somewhat. The things for climbing buildings to get from the bottom to the top right? So having the power coming down from the top may cause an issue?
"giving the gutsy individual holding the twin pads the ability to climb a 90-foot wall without fear."
So fearless that he only feels the need for one safety rope :-)
"They were told to create the perfect tool for armed forces personnel to scale buildings or mountain faces in ultra-tough conditions without the need for ropes and harnesses."
So why are they on a top rope with a harness on? I think they must have missed the brief!
Duck tape and a laptop bag. A-Team-tastic!
There are so many things I could pick out of this I don't even know where to start... Not sure if stupid or genius.
Certainly looks pointless.... but. Sounds like a right laugh to make and practical inventions have certainly come from far more far fetched prototypes than that.
5/10 for punning.
