We’ve always relied on duct tape to patch things, attach them together, and otherwise repair a variety of items in a jiffy. And it works great. Braeon is a thermoplastic ribbon that does the same thing, except it holds things together with a bond that, the outfit claims, is literally as strong as steel. This super plastic – in the form of a pure polymer ribbon – is capable of some pretty amazing things. With just the simple application of heat, this material can be turned into chain links, shoelaces, a vehicle tow rope, a knife handle wrap – honestly, the applications are nearly endless. It’s also unbelievably strong. In fact, a single ribbon can withstand over 2,500 pounds of pull-strength. It has even been used to tow a 5,000 pound truck up a 30 degree incline. And the best part is, it’s malleable enough that it can then be reformed and repurposed. Light as a feather, strong as steel, water resistant, and functional in extreme cold – Braeon super plastic can do it all.
The Renegade Broom is a curved pull broom. Like a rake, you pull dirt and debris toward you rather than pushing it away.

D3O is a bright orange putty that is soft when handled slowly but stiffens immediately when hit. The patented gel is already used by customers including sports brands Under Armour and Schutt Sports; workwear makers Snickers and Dr. Martens’; and the US Special Forces for defence applications.
“If I wrap it around my fingers, it’s very soft,” Felicity Boyce, a material developer at D3O, told CNN, “but if you hit it with great force, it behaves more like a solid that’s absorbing the shock and none of that impact goes through my hand.”
