When you absolutely need things to stick (permanently), you can turn to the inventions of steel Velcro. These sturdy fasteners were developed by German boffins and can be used in shoes as well as for medical bandages and cable ties.

Since synthetic Velcro often comes undone and usually isn’t that strong, these steel pads were created for even the use car assemblage and hanging façades on buildings.

Just imagine when the day comes when all you have to do is unfasten the steel Velcro on a car, instead of pulling apart pieces with complicated tools.
