This camera was colorfully ruggedized with a moldable silicone rubber called Sugru. I've used it to mend suitcase zippers, two pairs of headphones, a dishwasher, and other broken things around the house. The downside of Sugru is that it cures inside its foil pouch after a couple of months. I hope they come up with a formula that stays fresh longer!
