    Now all we need is a caveman, and we've got the trifecta.

    But they failed to mention the really cool effect that can come from mastering the quantum forces: anti-gravity. By reversing the attractive effect, scientists are hoping to generate enough repelling force to levitate matter. Fun stuff.

      Wow. I remember back when Neal Adams built his own anti-gravity machine. I don't think it worked, but hey, being a pioneer is a bitch.

        Crawling walls like Spider-Man isn't practical. If you're sticking to a thick layer of paint, it can come off. I can't imagine a 200 lb. person climbing up a painted sheetrock wall using their sticky fingertips. I'm sure it will have some practical use, but if I was a window washer I'd rather have a big metal box under me than be clinging to glass with one hand while I wash it with the other. Heaven forbid I try to cling to a spot that is freshly washed and wet. ;-)
