Here are some unusual things that have been made out of duct tape or have been repaired with duct tape. Duct tape has all kinds of survival uses and has been a marvelous product over the years.

That search engine that sits atop your shoulders, certainly has an eye for the quirky .

Some of those pictures were hilarious .


Can i add this to your collection , its a really mind blowing use for scotch tape. I`m a terror for bookmarking little oddities when browsing on-line.

X-rays detected from Scotch tape

Just two weeks after a Nobel Prize highlighted theoretical work on subatomic particles, physicists are announcing a startling discovery about a much more familiar form of matter: Scotch tape.

It turns out that if you peel the popular adhesive tape off its roll in a vacuum chamber, it emits X-rays. The researchers even made an X-ray image of one of their fingers.


The article goes on to say that perhaps this could lead to the production of relatively cheap x-ray machines .

Rapid pulses of X-rays, each about a billionth of a second long, emerged from very close to where the tape was coming off the roll.


Just mind blowing.

X-rays from tape is very strange indeed.

I still prefer the saying : "Duct tape is like The Force, it has a dark side , a light side and it binds the universe together".

Mind you that poor baby stick to the door and Bagsy I rip the tape off of Wigglies face.

Something you might not know about duct tape...

It was back engineered from recovered tape that they got out of the glovebox at the Roswell crash.
