Someone captured the lightning storm over Dublin Bay on Saturday night, it's pretty impressive! I am going under my desk now, call me when it's over.

Sugru

I heard about this product from some friends of mine while I was on holidays. So I checked out the Sugru site  when I got home and it's really amazing stuff. Sugru is a silicon based material which looks like play doh is moldable by hand, heat proof, waterproof and sticks like super glue. Essentially what it does is allow you to fix and customise your stuff. Sugru is the brainchild of product designer Jane Ní Dholchaointigh. Ní Dholchaointigh worked with scientist for 6 years to develop the product and it recently made Time Magazines: 'The 50 Best Inventions of 2010'. If you go to the Sugru site you will see some the creative uses Sugru customers have found for this product. You can read more about the inventor and the product in this article from the Tribune and you can buy it from the Sugru site, just ordered some myself!
