have used something similar (EasyMold).

As far as I can tell, sugru is subtly different than prior silicone molding compounds, particularly in that it's designed to stick to things rather than pull away cleanly.  I haven't actually used it myself.

Gotta love this bit...

We bought a small mixer and working with one of our engineer friends to design a packaging machine, we built it for £5,000 and it ran on an arduino.

Hi,

I used Sugru quite a few things and it's good at joining things together. I found it expensive though.

I also use this two part epoxy putty which is great to work with:

Best thing since sliced bread. I have fixed a broken handle on a casserole/pot. The handle broke of, I made a new one of two packets SUGRO and stuck it on the brackets. Has worked fine for four months (and I lift the pot with 2-3 litres boiling water in it). Also the cutlery/silverware-basket in the dishwasher the plastic netting in the bottom broke. I did some patching with Sugro. Still there after 5 months of daily dishwasher operation - and holding the cutlery.

This is a pretty impressive video, demonstrating the "stickiness" capabilities pretty well:
