Duct Tape Just Met its Match
If you’re someone who believes that duct tape can solve most problems – and your spouse doesn’t share your thinking – then this might be for you.
It’s called Sugru.
Jane ni Dhulchaointigh, who designed the material and founded the company that makes it, explains what Sugru is: “Sugru is a new material. It starts off like play-doh or modeling clay when you take it out of the pack. And then you can form it or bond it onto anything and form any shape. Overnight it will turn into a really durable, really tactile, nice silicon rubber.”
So it’s a bit more durable than duct tape – and versatile, too. Since people can use the material to actually create items, as well.
For instance, the founder shows how it can be used to create new keys on a saxophone, so players can customize it based on finger length.
Not exactly something you could do with duct tape.
