- Design an adapter to house your desired devices. The example we used is a design for the iPhone 6s.

- Next, you must design a device to hold the little bits so they are secure.

- First, seat the little bits inside of the boat you 3-D printed. This can either be taped on with duct tape or glued onto the top portion of the tripod.

- Next, use the small lego pieces to attach to the axel of the motor. This will allow easier attachment of the phone adapter.
