HPI, Losi and Traxxas are among the top brands in the radio-controlled (RC) world but none of them have a product quite as impressive as VertiGo, a wall-climbing RC car from Disney Research and ETH Zurich.

In fairness, VertiGo is perhaps better classified as a robot than a true RC car. The prototype shown in the clip above uses a pair of adjustable propellers to create enough thrust to allow it to defy gravity and seemingly drive up walls. While immensely cool as an RC car, odds are that the technology will likely be implemented in rescue robots and the like.
