Sugru community member 2Spinout came up with a practical use for the claw-like hands of LEGO minifigures. With the help of a LEGO brick and the multipurpose silicone rubber, you can stick a minifig on your desk and use it to hold cables. Lord Business will not be pleased about this.
2Spinout also suggested using different minifigs to tell other people where you are. For instance, you can use a minifig to indicate if you’re on a meeting and a different one to say you’re having lunch. Head to Sugru’s website for more on the hack.
