Sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.
Sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.
Sticks to almost anything
Sugru forms a strong bond to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.
Air cures at room temperature
Sugru is like modelling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air.

The iGrip cable repair technique Prevent breaks from happening
I came up with this idea as I noticed that cables get damaged from from being yanked from gadgets. The strain makes them break prematurely, so instead of buying new cables or repairing them once they break, I thought it would be cool to design a feature into the cable to prevent this from happening in the first place.
The feature is a grip so you can yank the cable from your devices, but the real benefit is that the sugru bonds to the cable and the plug eliminating strain on the cable. This should save the cable but also allow me to use my stuff the way I want to without worrying that I will break it, yay :) James, London
