Sugru!

 

This week Marcus got to test out Sugru, an extraordinary, amazing, incredible (do you know we like this stuff yet?) Moldable glue. Yes you read that correctly moldable.  It can stick permanently to stuff like ceramics, glass, metal and most plastics. All you got to do is push and mould it on to whatever it is you want to fix, build or stick together – all done it about 20mins or so and you’re done!

Then wait 24 hours and it turns from a moldable glue to a solid silicone rubber that stays stuck! (Just don’t mess around with it and remove it otherwise it becomes unstuck! There’s lots of properties it has too! Including, waterproof, flexible, heat/cold resistance, grippy and much more!

Mothca iPhone Case

After smashing his iPhone, Marcus decided to purchase a brand new iPhone case and after some surfing on Amazon he came across an ultra thin iPhone case which really caught his eye. The Mothca iPhone 6 6S Case, Full Body Ultra Slim PC Hard Cover Case + Tempered Glass Screen Protector 3 in 1 Design Front Cover & Back Case  Its really thin! Only 1mm in thickness and covers the whole iPhone only leaving the headphone jack, home button, speakers and grills visible! So really does offer some really good protection while keeping in touch with the iPhone’s slick design.

Batman, Arkham version, Our favourite Comic Book Character has been brought to life in the form of a WORLD RECORD BREAKING COSPLAY SUIT.

Basically it is a bad ass Batman Suit, that blows all other Batman cosplay suits out of the water. Its so good it even could rival the movies. It has been entered into  Guinness World Record books for the most functional gadgets on a cosplay costume. It 23 working gadgets, including smoke spray, fire ball sprays, a bat signal torch, magnetic bat boomerangs, GPS! Bat claw – you name it he has it. Julian Checkley, sorry Batman is the don that made the suit that is based on the Arkham games. Julian is a Special Effects master by trade and spent 3 months making it. But I have done enough talking. Just watch the video above in awe.

PowerWall by Tesla

Here at How To Kill An Hour we came across this really cool new product from Tesla called the Powerwall What the Powerwall basically is, is a massive battery for your home. It’s automated and compact so it’s not an eye sore and is super easy to install. The Powerwall is really cool in that it charges using the electricity that is generated from solar panels or when utility rates are low and powers your home in the evening instead of the grid. It’s so powerful you can even go off the grid entirely! Saving yourself a few bucks in the process, all from the power of the SUN! It also acts as a back-up so if there is a power-cut you will know nothing about it because the Powerwall kicks in and allows you to keep on playing that COD marathon!

Funk Butcher recently was on the hunt for a new durable bag and discovered the SWISSGEAR 15inch notebook bag. It’s hard wearing and really durable, and holds A LOT of stuff. Funk even said himself that it could hold roughly up to 2 weeks worth of clothing. Whether or not that holds true is up to you to decide, but it looks like it can hold A LOT of stuff:
