We love our oyster cards in London. They are electronic ticketing RFID cards that make travelling around London so simple — just tap in and tap out on the tubes, buses, trams and even boats down The Thames! No more fumbling around for change to buy a ticket ever again, yay!
But we're a bunch of makers and hackers here at sugru, we like to tinker with things...
So the other day, Jude from team sugru (you'll probably know him as Hey Jude on Instructables), came in with a big grin on his face. This usually means one thing, he's been making something cool!
Well we were right, he had deconstructed an Oyster card and rebuilt it into a fully functional sugru Oyster key fob! (classic Jude). We thought it was so good that we've made a guide for the 'Ible community.
Tip: write down the card 'serial number' on the back before you dissolve it, that way you can still check your account information online.
NB — We're totally not the first to try this, we spotted Frank Swain's video from way back in 2008! But thought we'd give it a little sugru twist :)
