Gecko-inspired angled elastomer micropillars with flat or round tip endings are presented as compliant pick-and-place micromanipulators. The pillars are 35 μm in diameter, 90 μm tall, and angled at an inclination of 20°. Through shear displacement control, pick-to-release attachment force ratios of 39 to 1 are achieved and micromanipulation is demonstrated.
