THIS PAST MAY, Sierra Blair-Coyle became the first woman to scale a 33 story skyscraper, using suction cups that were powered by two LG Code Zero K94SGN vacuum cleaners mounted on her back. The building was approximately 460 feet high and situated in Songdo International Business District, a "smart city" about 40 miles southwest of Seoul, South Korea. All told, it took Blair-Coyle about 30 minutes to reach the summit, pausing once to swap out the 80V lithium-ion battery packs, Altough some may view this as a publicity stunt, the implications could have a profound impact on the way elite firefighters and counter-terrorist could approach the outside of the building.

But I'm willing to bet we might see her on the side of the world's tallest building in Dubia. To hear our exclusive interview with Sierra, please listen to the Podcast below and Subscribe.
