Step 1: Parts

You will need:
Lego Parts:
1X: 3x4 plate with connection brackets and 1x4 plate with opposite connections
1X: 2x1 plate with connection brackets and 2x1 plate with opposite connections
Non-Lego Parts:
1X: lamp with positive/negative leads
1X: wire
1X: nut with swivel piece that fits onto a tripod bolt
1X: (optional)reflector for the lamp
1X: 2AA Battery Holder
1X: 2AA Batteries
1X: Template for the soft screen


As you can see, the only way to classify parts is as either Lego or Non-Lego.
All Non-Lego parts can be, with some difficulty, replaced with custom or store bought parts.

Total Cost-$0 (may be up to 5 dollars if you don't have certain parts or more if you choose to custom-build parts)

Now just attach it to a tripod and start using this handy device... perhaps even with the Pocket Tripod...

I like the reuse of the Lego pieces for the hinge.
