Stick it. Shape it. It turns into rubber.
When I was in high school, I had a real problem with my second hand Fender Strat (Second Series) electric guitar where the wires were in constant need of re-soldering. I could have easily learned how to do it – and eventually did – but at the time, my teenage self would head down to our city’s only music store in order to have them fix it (for a fee) before a live show. It was embarrassing, discouraging, and most of the time there was a major time constraint to get it fixed. I couldn’t exactly perform my teenage-angst songs in front of a crowd when my electric guitar would only create scratchy feedback. We live in a tech world, and it’s time we take control of now only HOW to use it, but HOW to FIX IT! My daughters live in a time where the Maker’s Movement is in full effect and there are so many awesome tools on the market to start kids on the awesome path of living and working with technology so that it becomes second nature.
While studying for her MA in Product Design (read ‘playing and experimenting with materials’) at the RCA in London, the creator of Sugru had a bit of an idea. “I don’t want to buy new stuff all the time. I want to improve and re-imagine the stuff I already have so it works better for me.” The team behind Sugru, the mouldable glue that makes fixing and making easy and fun. Do-ers of the world it’s time to get excited! If your tech breaks, fix it! And if it’s not broken, make it work even better. Repairing and adapting your stuff is a sustainable choice and just a little subversive.
