Ventooz Wall-Climbing Car

Based on Disney's VertiGo, the Ventooz is a wall-climbing car that is capable of driving on the floor as well as on walls and transition between the two automatically. However, it's not just a party trick, as the vehicle climbs using propellers, and since there's two, thrust is applied both towards the wall using the rear propeller, and in an upward direction using the front propeller, resulting in a flip onto the wall. This enablesa it to quickly make its way onto a wall, and then navigate it with ease. Continue reading for more pictures and information.

Working similar to spoilers do on a car by improving traction to keep the wheels on the road, the steerable nature of the propellers enables Ventooz to keep driving regardless of orientation. As long as power is continually supplied, and the propellers can keep spinning, it is near impossible to come crashing down from its vertical climb.
