So, this is what happens when you’re stuck hanging out at the office late into the evening waiting patiently for your turn in a website deployment process…
I’ve been killing time, and as I wanted to watch a movie that happened to be on my phone while I waited for that fateful email to arrive letting me know my role in this process was a go. But I needed a stand. I mean, who wants to watch a movie on a phone that is just laying there flat on a desk?
So, this is what I built using just a paper clip and some blue-tack.
The blue-tack sticks to the desk and to the phone, while the paper clip provides the angular support frame for the slightly-leaning stand. All of this combines to provide a sturdy, yet temporary prop for an ideal and comfortable viewing angle for the iPhone screen at it’s horizonal/landscape orientation.
And it worked pretty awesome too… provided I put the volume-buttons on the top edge and not the bottom. Y’know… because that caused a bit of sound-based chaos.
I know… almost too cool for words, right? All it needs is an Apple logo.
