Sugru - the 21st Century "Duct Tape"

Technology never stops, and although we may think of smartphones and tablets when we talk about technological advances in the past couple of years, there's a lot going on in many other areas: as we can clearly see by this Sugru.

The best way to describe it would be: the XXI century "duct tape" - as the things you can do with it are seemingly infinite. But the key point is that it will force you to rethink the concept of what's broken. Who hasn't had a case of a cracked case, or splitting charger cable, that you wished you had "something" you could fix it with?

From its site:
sugru is the exciting new self-setting rubber that can be formed by hand. It moulds like play-dough, bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight.
Maybe it's better to see it in action:

But before that, I can't stop wondering... if MacGyver was able to do everything he did using nothing but duct tape... just image what he could have achieved using sugru! :)
