Yes, I know it's an ad but it's just too damn cool not to share. Sugru, hackers' favorite silicone-based hardening clay, has innumerable uses to enhance, repairs or improve your favorite... well, anything.

I have no idea what I would do with it, but I want a ton of the stuff.

In the Netherlands, Domino's Pizza's electric scooters didn't make enough sound to warn oncoming bikers that they were coming. So, to fix the potential danger, Domino's installed devices on the scooters that emit fake engine noise... with a few added sounds here and there!

Last Thanksgiving we showed you how to cook a turkey using thermite. Now that summer is here (and somehow already coming to an end), it's time for something more BBQ-friendly.

I'm not entirely sure about sticking glove-less hands near molten iron or ingesting something that's been touching said lava.
