In our hackerspace www.MADspace.nl we have build a robot which has won a prize (see url: http://hackaday.io/project/740-mars). But unfortunately the material is weak and can break when driving the robot too hard against the wall. With Sugru you can make great bumpers for your robot on wheels. See below:

    This is a great use for sugru. In the past, where you may have glued on a piece of rubber, or zip-tied on some foam, you can just mold a bit of this stuff. Sugru is so great. Nicely done!

    It's a terrible use. You want something rigid, not flexible for reinforcement of a rigid area.
