the rise and fall of sugru (Wired UK)

FYI. http://www.wired.co.uk/article/the-rise ... l-of-sugru

Kind of a sad story: Sugru (https://www.adafruit.com/product/437) sounds like cool stuff. I never bought any because it's pretty expensive and you have to use it quickly before it dries out, but I did think of some possible uses for it.

They ended up having to sell the company to a big adhesives manufacturer for much less than they had hoped. Hacker News is full of similar comments to mine: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=17292710

Adafruit still has it in stock. I wonder if it will stay available from the new company.

That is a shame. Sugru ranks up there with duct tape and super glue as essential shop supplies. I hope Tesa continues to develop the product. (improving the shelf-life would be a plus).
