Adjustable Tablet Stand

I have recently bought an Asus Memo Pad, a 7-inch tablet which i use mainly to read documents and e-books. Not too long after, I find that I need a stand for it to enhance my comfort. Since I did not want to buy an overpriced commercial one and i have heaps of Lego at how..... *Ting* (light bulb above my head lights up) So you know where this is heading eh.

So I set out to build the most adjustable and compact 7-inch stand i can make

And since my mother liked it I made one for her too! but since hers is a 10-inch Galaxy Tab, I needed to build a bigger stand and it turned out better than mine =p.
You can find the instructions for that here -->(lhttp://www.instructables.com/id/Adjustable-thin-10-inch-tablet-stand/

Step 1: Its simple! just look and assemble

Firstly the dimensions are LxWxH = (13.5x12x1.5)cm
or in Lego terms LxWxH = (17x15x2)studs

The main hinge connects the backrest to the stand

you can customize these dimensions to your liking and use different parts that are available to you, but here are the important measurements that i find give the best range of motion without compromising stability.
-The distance from the main hinge to the support strut's hinge is 3 studs between them or 3cm from the pivot to pivot (if you find this confusing just mouse over the area between the hinges in the last picture and see how I counted it)
-The support strut is 7 studs long or 5cm long.
And note that the hinge is raised above the main frame
