Sugru Build Night at Makers Local 256!

Hey Makers and Breakers, Tinkerers and... uh, Thinkerers! Tyler here, from the Makers Local 256 hackerspace in Huntsville, Alabama! I just wanted to share some of the projects and ideas we toyed around with on our monthly build night for July. Our theme was Sugru, thanks to some kind gifts from Carley and the rest of the folks at Instructables; you guys rock!

We had a few different projects that were worked on, so I'll start with the ones with Instructables attached first! My project was to modify an AppleTV remote so that it would stop sliding between the cushions of the couch, but decided to allow it to stand up on its own as well. The mod was quick and simple and is described in my Instructable here.

Another member grabbed a couple of those spinny whirlygig handcopter toys and set out to combine them into a single, more powerful, machine!

Those of you who knit know the annoyance of losing stitches when transporting your works in progress. DeathRogue decided that enough was enough and fashioned some knitting needle endcaps out of Sugru!

We also had other little projects, including adding a Sugru kickstand to a Galaxy Note 2 for watching Netflix, building a wooden spindle using Sugru for the kickwheel, creating rubber Sugru feet for a Raspberry Pi case, and even practicing the ancient Japanese art of breaking and mending pottery pieces: Kintsugi!

Check out our pictures of the event, and if you're ever in the North Alabama region, come check us out!
