We had a lot of fun at our Sugru Build night sponsored by instructables.com. There were classics like key fob repairs and fixing broken ceramics of course. But we also had some truly inspired uses of the incredible Sugru material.
First, there was a detailed LEGO Minifig fitted with a Sugru Ironman Armor suit.
Next, we found that Sugru makes some very useful self-locking wingnuts and wingbolts.
And we repaired and improved an Emma jar (classic sealed jar) by fixing the broken gasket and adding a handle.
We also saw Sugru buttons used to protect a Mason jar, which means we’re ready for the great Mason Jar shortage predicted for 2017.
We also had an inspired camera hack that put a custom grip on a point-and-shoot so that you don’t accidentally activate movie mode when you’re trying to take a picture. Annoying AMIRITE?
Other cool stuff included a hauntingly accurate depiction of Kirby (of Nintendo fame) and a whiskey glass turned into a measuring cup.
We have spared you the epic failures (mini putter ipad holder for conference call convenience, corkscrew protector that looks like a genetically altered greenbean, and others which can’t be described in a family-friendly blog). This is what happens when, at the end of the Sugru build night, we say “Hey what should we make with this little bit of leftovers?” Maybe when instructables-fail.com goes live we’ll consider uploading there.
