On the "Gecko shower`s" rear side we can find an area
which is made up of Carbon nanotubes. These nanotubes
are much stronger than that found on a Gecko`s foot and
this material can be attached on or removed from, any
vertical surface no matter how smooth or rough.
According to Van der Waal's force, the theory is that when it is pulled down it is fixed, on the other
hand, if it is pulled in front of you it comes off easily. You can fix the "Gecko shower" on the wall
simply by pulling it down. And if you want take it off, just pull it in front of you for easy removal.
