This is the story of Sugru, but it’s also a great story about seeing the potential in something and making your idea a reality.
As part of the 2010 Science Week lecture series, inventor Jane Ni Dhulchaointigh tells us about how she created the new material Sugru while she was studying product design in the Royal College of Art in London in 2003. She explains how her interest in change and adaptability allowed her to invent this silicone based adaptable material.
And a note for the folks who might be interested, Ireland’s next Science Week is coming up November 13-20.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
