This contest has ended and winners have been announced. To see who won, check out our quick winners post. Thanks to everyone for submitting their ideas!
Mad Science is back with another contest this month. This time, you've got a chance to win your very own Sugru, the magical mold-anything goo!
Sugru is a wondrous putty made from silicone and epoxy. It molds to any shape and permanently bonds to any surface. The resulting Sugru models are super tough and just a little bendable. This combination of sturdiness and flexibility make Sugru ideal for strengthening handles, camera cases, car keys, and a million other things.

Here's the deal. In the comments below, post your most awesome Sugru project idea. You don't need to actually perform your project idea, just let your thoughts splatter into the comments box. Our two favorite ideas will receive a free full pack of Sugru to help them get their project off the ground! Winners will even be able to choose their favorite color.
Each pack contains 8 pieces of Sugru for your hacking pleasure. Remember that the putty dries permanently and cannot be reused. If you have a great project idea, you won't need to waste any Sugru on prototyping!
Send us your musings, your flights of fancy, your brainstorms, and your fanatical ravings!
Check out the pics below for some inspirational Sugru propaganda.
Custom stamps and molds are great with Sugru because it dries with just a little bit of flexibility for pressing ink or prying out plaster.

Earbuds and other custom grips are a snap. Press the Sugru around the ear buds or shovel handle when malleable and let it dry to the pattern of your grip or ear canal.
