sugruI remember an old Disney movie, The Absent Minded Professor, which is noted for the title character’s invention of Blubber, a substance that was way ahead of its time.  More recently, I discovered Sugru, a real world substance that quite possibly may be the coolest addition to the world since, well, ever.

Sugru is a moldable rubber that can be applied to all manner of uses and when cured is waterproof and just awesome.  Sugru is essentially a tool to help you repair things.  For example if a button on your favorite steam iron broke off, you can mold a new one and you are good to go.  Or maybe you want to add a grip to your favorite pair of scissors, you can use Sugru to mold custom handles.  But I am considering all the other possibilities you could use this stuff for – like artwork or creative enhancements to your stuff.

About Sugru: “Developed by a team of product designers and materials scientists, surge’s patented technology is unique in its combination of hand-formability, self-adhesion and flexibility when cured. It feels like modeling clay, and it’s that easy to use too. Once cured, its durable properties mean it’s comfortable in extreme environments from the dishwasher to the ocean to Antarctica.”

Sugru’s tagline is “Hack Things Better” – which I assume means that the product is designed to help you change things into something new and improved.  Check out the Sugru website to see all the ways this great product can be utilized.  My mind is already swimming with all the possibilities I can use this stuff for.  I just ordered a pack of the multicolored Sugru and the black and white version.  I can wait to get my hand on my Sugru and start creating.
