If you've ever wanted to climb up walls like Spiderman, inventor Jem Stansfield has some gloves for you that let you do just that. Stansfield is the TV host of "Bang Goes the Theory" on BBC One, and demonstrated the Spiderman gloves in front of a stunned crowd of onlookers as a stunt for the show.

Jem Stansfield's Spiderman gloves are made from an everyday vacuum cleaner. The video above shows the inventor scaling the 120-foot wall of the BBC White City building in London. Check out some other Spiderman innovations for regular folks below.
