I was one of the first backers of TheGearCrew’s kickstarter campaign. GekkoGum is a new and very simple way to mount action cameras or smartphones on every imaginable surface. One can record videos or take pictures from every angle.

My order was just delivered and I would like to share my first impressions with you. It is a grey mass and it looks like a little ball. It comes in a wrap and you can knead it like plasticine.

I put it on glass and it sticks. I put it on wood and it sticks. I went to the basement and put it on a water pipe and it sticks.

I think GekkoGum is a very useful rubber compound. It’s free of grease so it doesn’t stick to your fingers. Your device shouldn’t exceed the weight of 200 gram. GekkoGum won´t stick to silicone and fabrics properly! With water, you can clean it but i’ts hard to clean the mass from tiny particles of dust. TheGearCrew says, GekkoGum doesn’t ageing. We will see if this is true.

I’ve ask about the environmental compatibility and Nina from TheGearCrew was writing me: The ingredients are environmently harmless. In fact (without naming the specific formula) GekkoGum is made from the same raw materials as known from real chewing gum and its volume consists of mineral substances like chalk. FOR REASONS OF SAFETY: GEKKOGUM IS NO FOODSTUFF!

See how it sticks to a lamp shade:
