  • 5 Pencils + 4 Rubber Bands = Your New iPhone Stand


    I'm always bugged by the fact that my $29 iPhone 3G dock doesn't let me set the thing landscape.

    Some guy named Roland devised a high-tech stand using 5 pencils and 4 rubber bands to watch his iPhone movies and such. A clever little creation indeed. You never know, this may even work with pens.

    Of course there's no nifty built-in charger for this stand, but at the low price of $1.12, I'm sure you can finagle some way to make it happen.

    Show us your versions.

    Thanks for the tip, Roland.

      Do you want to get it wrong and risk damaging your iPhone?

      I plan to make one out of Lego! Looks cools and is interchangable when you want different colours.

      I have one cheaper than $1.12!!! Made mine from a 5x8 note tablet by using the cardboard cover from the back. Some cutting and stappling and walla! A nifty little iphone stand. That along with my USB cable to charge, works great!

      I've got a mini easel came with mini canvas. I bought it because that was kinda cute

      Then I thought, "wow this can be ... "

      Now it's my iPhone stand, not easel anymore
