Losing your keys is the worst -- so it makes sense to do whatever you can to ensure your keys get back to you safely, should they be misplaced. For some that may mean attaching a Bluetooth-enabled location tracker, but I'd rather not have yet another bulky plastic doohickey on my keychain next to my flash drive.

Sometimes, when fumbling with your keys, you spend a lot of time staring at them to figure out which one you need. If you can identify them by touch, however, you don't have that problem. With a little Sugru, you can easily add those variant textures.

Committed to never let that happen again, he grabbed some heat shrink tubing, a heat gun, and went to work.
