In need of a stand to watch videos from your iPhone but all you have is a bunch of office supplies lying around? This DIY construction of such a stand is simply made out of ordinary pencils and rubber bands which is definitely simple enough to build.

Basically three wooden pencils were used to build a tripod-like frame with two additional pencils acting as the anchor and base where the iPhone is to be placed horizontally on. Though it is made from regular stationery, the stand looks quite sturdy to me.

One advantage I can think of is the beneficial elevation of the stand, as it could potentially save the iPhone from a bad spill.

Kudos to Fatgadget from Geeky-Gadgets for coming up with this interesting-looking iPhone stand.
