Bondic™ is The World’s First Liquid Plastic Welder

bondic

This is a seriously cool product. It’s a stick that contains a special resin that remains liquid until you zap it with the included ultraviolet light. When that happens, it hardens within 4 seconds. In other words, Bondic allows you to play around with your broken stuff right up until the moment you need it to harden. No more stressing out that your glue is going to harden before you’ve had time to place things in the shape you want, simply because Bondic is not glue: if you don’t zap it with the UV light, it won’t harden, period.

It’s $22 for a stick, and $12 for a refill cartridge.

Gecko Glue Is Probably The Strongest Glue Ever

By Jonathan Kimak

Well, there could be a stronger glue, I just don’t know about it yet. This glue, which is modeled after the sticky feet of geckos, is pretty strong stuff. 1 square inch of the stuff can support 220 pounds of weight. And since it acts like the gecko’s feet the glue can be removed and reapplied numerous times. The bottle of Coke in the picture is being supported by just 4 millimeters of the stuff.

So my thought(and yours and probably everyone else’s) was that it’s time to find that old Spiderman costume from halloween’s past and do some real wall climbing.

The glue is made from carbon nanotubes with small, curly carbon filaments on the ends that act like the little hairs in a gecko’s feet. But this glue is 10 times stronger than a gecko’s foot. And the glue can be used for non fanboy activities such as creating electronic components without the need of soldering.
