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.

Yoogo Self Defense Keychain

yoogo

It’s a cliché of so many movies: nervous girl walking back to her car in the dark, clutching her keys in her hands as if she’ll manage to fend of a would-be attacker with them. Maybe that works in the movies but in real life, it wouldn’t hurt to have something like the Yoogo keychain instead. Its special shape lets you securely grab it, while allowing some portions of it to stick out between your fingers. This both protects your hand in case you have to defend yourself, while inflicting a little more damage to your assailant. It’s not quite a brass knuckle, so we think its use is probably legal, but hey… we are not lawyers so make sure to know your local laws before carrying this. It’s $20 and they’ll ship worldwide.
