Spiderman in England

Hibiki Kono spent five months building a vacuum climbing machine in his design technology class at King’s College School in Cambridge.

His design technology teacher Angus Gent said:  “I’m hugely proud of him.  He developed it himself, which is amazing for someone of his age.”

Headmaster Nick Robinson added:  “We’re thrilled with his hard work. He went up a wall for assembly and it was amazing.”

The concept isn’t new (watch BBC One climb a building), but come on, this kid is 13.
