Our day to day work relies heavily on electronic gadgets and this includes Apple products. And when a breakdown occurs (well.. minor ones)...... its Sugru to the rescue. What we love about Sugru is its as awesome as Blu-Tack (as most Australians would agree) where you could mould it into any shape you want, but with an added advantage that it sticks well to most surfaces and the mould retains its shape permanently. Its popular for DIY-ers as its like a Blu-Tak & Duct Tape all in one plus more. Here's some examples on how you can use it.

I previously watched a Q&A tv show on the ABC channel and saw their guest utilising wearable technologies into their daily lives. I'm so impressed and decided to search for a youtube clip that shows how wearable technology greatly improved the way they live.

I stumbled into this finger puppet project at the bareconductive website. Thought its a fun project to do with your kids specially on this upcoming father's day. Here's the link to this tutorial. http://www.bareconductive.com/make/finger-puppets/

At the end of this tutorial you will have added a switch to the mouth of these these finger puppets using Electric Paint. When the mouth is closed your dinosaur’s eyes, horns, nostrils, or ears will light up. Use the templates shown here or design your own!
