Sugru + Lego = Endless Possibilities

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. Yesterday the company released this promotional video showing off what can be done when it's combined with the world's most popular building block. I have no idea what I would do with it, but I want a ton of the stuff.

Zapata Racing just released the Flyboard, a water-powered jet pack available to the public. The Flyboard gets it propulsion from a jet ski idling nearby; its hose forces water to shoot out of the user's feet. Not as cool as a the real deal the public is waiting on, but I guess this is a happy medium for now.

Last week I issued a challenge to design a book lamp like boutique ones made by Typewriter Boneyard but for a fraction of the cost. Lo and behold, user Richard made a beauty. Using three used books and light fitting parts found at a DIY store, he built this model with two hours of spare time and less than £15. A tip of the hat to you sir for putting together such an impressive (and functioning) model.
