Sugru: Cool New Polymer Fixes and Sticks to Pretty Much Everything

via www.boingboing.net

Okay, this is the mind-blowing plasticoid compound I've been waiting for ever since I busted my first pair of sunglasses in '86.

I'm ordering some Sugru to try.  It looks like it has a pretty short working time, but I'm guessing it could replace duct tape as the adhesive device of choice for the modern handyperson.

You can take the girl out of the 70s, but you can't takes the 70s out of the girl.

Don't tell "Red!"

Mag

Michael, you're so right. I tried to have my 70s extracted once and the procedure failed.

Kate, not only am I going to tell Red Green, I'm going to send him some Sugru for his birthday. Naturally he'll just roll his eyes and hand it to Harold, which is great because Harold is the one I have a crush on.
