Formcard, which is made entirely in the UK, is a starch based bioplastic that melts in hot water and can be shaped to, for example, fix a household item before it cools and solidifies.
Peter Marigold first launched the product on the crowdfunding website Kickstarter where, he states, it was funded in the first 24 hours and went on to conclude with 816% funding. The campaign was then transferred over to Indiegogo.
Formcard is a pocket sized sheet that fits inside a wallet and a cup of hot and comes in a range of bright colours.
The fast solidifying action of the material allows the user to fix things quickly in an emergency, states its creator. The material can also be reused, so when it has served its purpose it can be dropped back into hot water and reformed into something else.
