Sugru/Oogoo Design possibilities
I was mending some iPad charging cables with homemade Sugru and didn't consider the further possibilities until just recently. Shown is my first test piece, a glass jar. I had been thinking of making baby food jars into lunchbox snack-food containers that were shatter resistant and dishwasher safe. Sugru fits the bill for that purpose.
When I was mending my charging cables, the excess sugru stuck to my vinyl tarp used as a dropcloth. Then I realized I can make iPad cases with silicone corners. I don't have to have all those fiddly shapes to sew to make openings for the speakers, audio port, cameras and charging port -- which is why I haven't been making iPad sleeves to this point. fixing the tablet with flexible corner mounts is much better.
The sugru would also make a great stylus holder.
My ideal iPad case has a stylus holder, macro lens holder, bottle of screen cleaner, and charging cable storage. And of course the ability to prop it up, plus being an artistic statement. These attributes I will ponder.
