Sugru – the world’s first hacker specific material


Sugru is a brand new substance designed to make it easy to fix, customise, repair and update things. It’s like modelling clay, but sets to a flexible silicone constituency, is adhesive to just about anything like super glue, is heat and cold impervious and waterproof.


It comes in a number of colours and once taken out of the sachet cures in 24 hours. They’re marketing it as the ultimate hacker material, useful for fixing up just about anything, especially where a softer more flexible end state is needed. Here’s the video and a video review. We’ve tagged it ecological because anything that can help make our products last longer gets a gold star from us. £7.00 ($11.18) for a starter pack. [Via]

  Extremely clever scientists have been working on sugru for over 5 years to give it as many great physical properties as possible, so it can be as versatile and useful as possible for you…Why are so many products just so bad? Uncomfortable tin openers, leaky trainers, they get our goat! Why should you have to spend £20 on a designer tin opener? You shouldn’t! Hack the one you have instead…sugru can help you dramatically prolong the life of your stuff. By applying in some cases even a teeny tiny bit to your things, you get to keep them for much longer and decrease your impact on our wee world.
