Andrew Sleigh of MAKE profiled inventor Jane ni Dhulchaointigh (I call her "Jane") about one of my favorite things, Sugru. I just used some of this versatile air-cure rubber to reinforce the corners of my iPad.
Sugru, the self-setting rubber that can be used to hack, mod or fix almost anything, can be found in many a maker’s toolbox. Jane ni Dhulchaointigh, who invented it, is well-known to makers in the UK and further afield. The story she tells of Sugru’s development over the last 10 years is an inspiring one of struggle and perseverance. So when she offered me a tour of their factory in Hackney, I jumped at the chance to find out more about how it’s made, and where it came from.
