The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Origami iPhone stand

Here’s a rather silly YouTube vid of a guy making an origami iPhone/iPod stand out of a $100 bill. Call me cheap, but I bet you’d get the same results with a $1 bill, or even a rectangle of paper. Lifehacker, where we found this, also points us to a similar, easier stand made out of a business card.

    There’s an article on Gizmodo with an interview with the author of the video: he explains why he used a $100 bill in the video, I think it’s a very funny (and subtle) reason indeed. By the way, in the ending of the video, the author himself says a $1 bill can be you used as well.
