Is electroadhesion possible to achieve as a diy project? Answered

I want to build a robot that can climb walls. It needs to move quietly because I want to use it for surveillance. I need to figure out how I will get it to stick to a smooth wall. I don't wanna use suctions cups cause I think they would be too noisy.

Would eletroadhesion(see link below) be possible for me to do as a diy project? If you have any other ideas for how I can get my robot to stick to a wall, that would be awesome.
