Kids and electronics usually don't mix. I have more than one broken headphone jack and a missing iPod thanks to my siblings. With my family visiting this week, my younger sister will be looking for something controller-shaped to play with and promptly demolish. So I'm prepping my living room's game controllers for the reckoning with some Sugru, the silicone and rubber adhesive putty that lets you customise basically everything you own.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


Bicycle lights are expensive and leaving them on your bike when you're out and about is an effective way to have them stolen. If you want to make them easy to just snap on and off, Instructables has a guide showing how to use a bit of Sugru and a magnet to make your lights easily detachable.


Everyone hates lifting a heavy box, milk crate, or toolbox and having the handle dig into your hands while you're carrying it. It hurts, it sucks and it's terrible -- but a little Sugru can fix it and make those handles and grips easier on your hands.


Whether it's serving as an interactive cookbook or a wireless TV, a tablet is an awesome kitchen companion. However, resting it on the bench can expose it to spilled ingredients, and doesn't offer great viewing angles. Mounting it on the wall above your bench is a perfect solution, and all it takes is a little Sugru.
