It’s a wall climbing robot. It has some sort of vacuum suction system on it that allows it to cling to walls like Spiderman.
For some reason I am doubtful of its ability to navigate in one direction or the other, likely it’s just up and down the wall with no left or right movement. Plus it will only work on clean, flat surfaces so that’s another downer.
However for $10, even if you cant enjoy it as is, you could probably rip it apart and hack it into something purposeful or more enjoying. It would be great for mounting a small camera on, hit the timer button and run.
