Inventables: materials from the future

posted by Jason Kottke   Mar 14, 2011

Inventables is an online store that sells “materials that designers, artists, and inventors use to develop new products and push the boundaries of what’s possible”. That’s a pretty tame description for the craziest collection of stuff I’ve ever seen…it’s like a Home Depot from the future. For instance: Suction Cup Tape, Heat-Shielding Gel (“temporarily protects surfaces in temperatures up to 7500 °F”), Translucent Concrete, and Rubber Glass (“looks like glass, breaks like glass, but feels like rubber”).
