Techno-Neophyte: Lego iPhone as Monitor/Holder

2012-12-20 - Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Hadn't Googled this idea when the need first arose, but two tries with paper and Silly Putty stands failed. This one worked almost perfectly, and the rubberized holder - this is a hand-me-town girl one used in an emergency until a cash build-up which never happened would allow a macho-black one - but, these Lego's, borrowed from the Grevans grands' stash worked just fine. It has room for the charging cord without a wire breaking bend, and the rubberized case stays in place as well as it does on the dash. All it needs is a rubberized base. After reveling in the success of the 'invention,' and then Googling, it turned out that, as with all new ideas, it's already being done. Amazon has building DYI building block stands and Lego phone cases. Still it felt good not to have to call Sonny Vance to build a custom oak one, or Jerry Holt in to provide technical advice.
