4 Pencils and Rubber Bands? Got iPhone Stand!

Roland dropped us a note about this improvised iPhone stand he whipped together with nothing but several pencils, rubber bands, and a needful dream. He put it together so he could enjoy a little landscape video.

Check out his site, geeky-gadgets.com, for more pics and instructions.

Anyone going to try Macgyver'ing this one up at home?

That is awesome. I'm gonna try to make one for my desk on Monday.

infoliberation says:

My desk will have one too. I gotta say, I've been waiting for this a long time, just didn't know it. I just hadn't got around to getting a stand. Well now it'll be virtually free(a la job supplies-and it's only borrowing). Thanks Shamwow, er Roland. 5 pencils.

Ra'ed says:

We have pencils but no rubber bands :(, I guess that some of us will have invent their own.

Somebody needs to learn to count!

Cornelius says:

There's a new, improved version of this stand out there. It's more stable, and can hold the iPhone in portrait orientation:
