If your answer is a £14.98 Value Vacuum Cleaner from Tesco, you are only half-right…
As it turns out this humble vac won’t just clean your carpets… It will also help you to scale walls and ceilings!
Hibiki Kono, a 13-year-old Spiderman fan from Cambridge, has turned two of these vacuum cleaners into a climbing machine. Apparently he created this masterpiece in design technology lessons, adapting the vacuum nozzles into giant sucker pads, and wowed the other students when he scaled a wall during school assembly.
His design technology teacher Angus Gent said: ‘I’m hugely proud of him. When he came to me with the idea at the beginning I had my doubts, but once he proved it could be done I encouraged him.
‘He developed it himself which is amazing for someone of his age.
‘He has spent two and a half hours a week creating it over the last five months.’
Hibiki, whose friends have been working on more down-to-earth technology projects such as coffee tables and remote controlled boats, said the gadget is great fun.
‘I wanted to make something a bit different and I designed most of it myself.
‘My mum thinks it’s brilliant but she won’t let me us it in my bedroom as she is worried I may pull down the ceiling.
