And we're talking -- war games away why I think this is really cool because a couple of years ago we did a story that we called Spider-Man now rules the border some funky title we did was basically how.
All kinds of new technology was being employed -- used by.
Our -- our men and women down on the border I -- this is fantastic when -- honest about the war game situation about the ability to climb walls this kind of stuff.
I give us a little run down a layman's terms you know the technology involved and and how viewers at home should be you know how interesting this really -- I'm so so excited about this technology and it came in and notes that Dougherty back and who wouldn't want to climb -- wall excited -- an.
And an -- I know no kidding you may and I have you seen that film Mission Impossible those protocol where countries -- -- up to go and that is basically what we're talking about and that is seen to be delivered to our armed forces and how cool of that.
I love this stuff off -- is currently out of box stuff that really works and how the practical application -- as a kind of touched on it gets a little bit complicated how it works but.
The best programs the favorite my favorites that I covered this week -- been using the gecko rather than the spider for inspiration of this technology.
And people think I am I thought action from -- -- his program that get those used.
-- -- you know get those as little lizards sell insurance.
These suction -- -- the sensor that's -- to climb.
But actually the reasoning very complicated called -- walls forests and I won't bore you with the details but it works kind of like you know -- take final.
That's basically what's happening so it's that kind of stick that these technologies are using.
Syria it's very lots -- -- application needs from like a civilian perspective you can use -- but a flat screen TV up on the law you know from a defense perspective I love it for urban combat.
He urban terrain -- -- very relevant it will continue to be -- very irrelevant and when you get energy drink walls -- -- -- on -- so you the ability to like anything that we continue to lay in the lead of the war -- -- -- -- they're having to carry.
Latter's rips you climb means so you -- just like run up there and super quick like for yourself up in the -- Mission Impossible style.
Will be huge advantage in we do some of the week for them and -- -- to kind of cool applications that -- systems has been looking at which I haven't thought about but.
Anything ranging from quickly.
-- an -- -- -- you know a hole in an aircraft scan -- quickly sealing up fuel tank apple.
Or for example I mean the stuff is so strong that it can tether an aircraft carrier.
And it really is -- remarkable -- -- -- Collins up right now on foxnews.com -- -- a -- games -- for for our network for online you see right there amazing Spiderman -- will that soldiers -- your walls.
You don't you talk what technology how cool it is for us at home but.
Yes pretty cool I mean it I get -- be a lot time of the Middle East the similarity to what you'll actually see in the Middle East is stunning outcome.
But I think viewers at home you know we have a lot of all the snow somewhere in the military who are have I have met someone in the military of course explained to our viewers how important it is.
To really to really understand it our troops need to beat.
Totally trained in urban warfare how that's really what it's becoming especially Syria -- all the other things happening around the globe right now.
Break Willie -- catching ability yourself items I don't know I can do better bet yes and Amy are clearly on that -- -- hit it happened everything.
A -- Madonna but I careful.
-- -- -- and he's and we we are clearly on that trajectory as eyes were scaling down and we really need to nature that you know the force that we have our -- child well suited to our future terrain in future operations.
Syria is a fantastic example Iran would soon be another example they going forward they're very few conflicts where we wouldn't be encountering urban -- so.
You know -- originally were a little bit slow on the uptake in -- -- the brits and part for some men torrent today highlight experience it -- IRA.
NORTHERN IRELAND but you know US forces are hard to obesity you know that they're learning curve is steep -- very quick in terms of and with the -- coin is you know an industry in counterinsurgency.
And -- -- he's really talk and that urban terrain so.
For you know in terms -- practical application for this -- and in on.
I am guessing good example is and if you want to say to an assault -- An idea compounds are probably gonna face a while some -- -- especially tonight.
Or announcing an -- an engraved invitation -- Santa you know storms someone's stronghold yet.
So you wait would you like this sort of this wouldn't enable stealth you know his speed -- is speed is so important in terms of getting on target.
I and in -- age of social media you would remember item you with that seal raid on bin Laden even we had some random guy.
Tweeting my first helicopter incoming you know this state is the real -- -- anything easing in urban warfare because everyone's on social media and you know whether intentionally or not and -- essentially -- rates of reporting of movements of forces and helicopters vehicles.
All that is clearly you know helping out.
People who don't -- very well so.
In the premier expiration of the social media that's another -- -- ten -- so.
That's of this technology super exciting cool on it -- practical application that respect -- anything can Judith speed up entry is fantastic.
Whether it's on walls or you know any the other stuff -- I -- my comic -- check out.
They need to think I had it I love -- -- that at -- But -- very quick in light that's the name of the game plan is not dangerous but you do whether they out an endless conflict.
No doubt -- you you nailed it I'd I'd I'd just drop I have frontrunner -- the U boarded given me.
-- foxnews.com check out the article there of course Boller -- Boller are reporting is great stuff.
All of us need to know -- and and a lot of it's gonna have practical implications we talk about everyday business has loads of things that can be used.
In -- street may potentially in a building near you in downtown San Francisco for example or New York so Alison thanks again for your time and -- --
