VAN DER... WHAT?

Our name is inspired by van der Waals’ forces (or van der Waals’ interaction), named after Dutch scientist Johannes Diderik van der Waals, which describes the residual attractive or repulsive forces between molecules or atomic groups. To sum up, geckos can stick to walls and ceilings because of van der Waals’ forces.
