Sugru is a great addition to the toolkit of any hacker/fixer/maker/artist.
I've been working on a few projects recently to stick exhibit-y things together or to make small replacement parts that need to be flexible and strong, and Sugru really does the trick. So I thought I'd ReWind this posting. Enjoy!
In fact, "Hacking Things Better" seems to be the company motto!
Plus Sugru has a great story --- creative young woman works with two materials scientists to develop a better (silicone-based) material to fix and improve things.
As you can see on the Sugru website there are lots of clever ways to repair and/or improve even everyday items.
