    I see lots of new gadgets out there and most are pretty gimmicky. This one got my attention more than most. Great concept.

    Good thing I watched til the end. I now know that the LED is removable. I'm assuming you need to let it warm up a little? That's the only reason I could think that you'd want to turn the light on, then flip it around to apply the Bondic with the light bouncing in front of your face.

    Looks like a pretty slick repair goo though.

    Pretty cool. I like how they showed the application on the iPad and iPhone, pretty clever.

    I don't think I could bring myself to do that unless the device was already "old" and was showing signs of wear though.

    Or you could just use a case for your device. lol!
    Pretty cool gadget though. Like JK said, I would imagine it takes a little longer to heat up in order to melt the product and then again to harden the product using the led. They made it seem like it only takes a couple seconds.
    Who knows, maybe it is instantaneous....that'd be cool if it was.
    Basically, a glue gun for the modern age.

    I've had a dentist use something very similar, activated in seconds with UV. This is the consumer version. It's even available on Amazon. They have a FAQ on their site explaining the differences between this "stuff" and glue.

    Yup. The dentist stuff hardens quick.

    It looks really subtle, but I'd be the same. I wouldn't mind trying it on my nexus 7 though.

    Wonder how much work it is to take off the stuff

    I'm betting that has a lot to do with the material you apply it too. Just like using any kind of glue or other adhesive material, it's gonna stick better to certain material types and textures than others.
