Sugru Self-Setting Rubber

What’s this? Could man’s second best friend, duct tape, have some new competition from across the pond? Created by British designers, Sugru is a self-setting rubber, a sort of moldable glue, that goes from a Play Doh-like substance to overnight in room temperature turns to silicone rubber.

It bonds to most materials – wood, glass, plastics, metals, etc. – and is pretty darn tough, so you can use it for a variety of handyman assists. It’s waterproof and can handle temperatures from as low as -50ºC to +180ºC. Use it to fix your surfboard or patch up your leaky boots; create custom bumpers for your phone, add some ergonomic grips to your tools or outdoor gear; fix electric cables; or just go nuts and make everything you own LEGO-compatible. It’s also removable. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
