Years have passed and I can now enjoy my old Game Boy games on my Nexus One.
On screen keys are not ideal for serious gaming though, so with the help of of an android app, Wii Controller IME i can now connect a wiimote to my phone and enjoy the feel of real keys.
This though created a new situation. I now needed a stand to set my mobile on so I can lean back and enjoy.
The stand needed to be adjustable to accommodate different scenarios. Whether that would be gaming on the desk or leaning back on the couch. After a few days of pondering this, I remembered my LEGO.
This is the result after a few hours of tinkering. It can hold everything from the nexus one to the iphone. Angle of view can be adjusted according to preference or situation for your gaming pleasure. It is a good and sturdy all-around stand for any mobile. This configuration holds the nexus one and iphone in both portrait or landscape. Slight adjustments can be easily made to accommodate pretty much anything you can think of.
I am providing pictures to help you build the LEGO stand, in addition to screenshots and two 3D models made using SR 3D Builder that can be inspected in detail. SR 3D Builder is a free CAD program that allows you to build and test LEGO models. The pictures and screeshots should help with building the stand and the alternate gear assembly if you don't have the yellow part that holds the screw and the gear that I used. Although if any additional help is needed please feel free to contact me.
