The goal of this project was to create a unique stand for an Ipad Mini. I first thought of this project when i seen the ad photos of the Ipad being held in a persons hand! As I had a mini I looked for creative stands for it but unfortunately I couldn't find anything cool enough so decided to make my own.

  • Duct tape
  • Cardboard

Step 1: The Ipad Dummy

The first step is to make a cardboard duplicate of the ipad to use during the molding process as I am sure nobody wished to ruin their Ipad. First i cut a piece of card board slightly smaller than the Ipad so  my mold would hold the ipad securely. I then covered it in duct tape so the cardboard would keep its shape while in the alginate. 

Step 2: Resizing Dummy

Once that was made the next step was making the alginate solution however before I did this I discovered that my container was not tall enough for my hand and the dummy ipad. I cut the dummy down in height so that my hand would still hold it i the correct manner but didn't have the excess beyond my finger tips.

This is great! I'm by no means a man who ever gives obscene gestures, but for some reason I find it a humorous thought to make a middle finger variant. Less stability, more "Lol's."
