A useful tripod that's easy to make and fits in your pocket. It uses stiff wire wrapped in electrical tape as legs, and taped to a bolt. I have like 4 now so i'll give one to my friend that wanted one.
Step 1: Get Supplies
you need 4 things:
3 Stiff pieces of wire, 10+ inches long (old coat hangers, copper house wiring)
a 1/4" bolt that fits camera mounts, they're pretty common
