Ever wished to view movies, album art, picture slideshows .. away from your charger, on your coffee table, work desk. well, ..

Here I describe how to make a hopefully fairly robust stand made from a Corn Flakes Packet for your ipod/ iphone, squeezebox controller, mobile phone or most other handheld media devices.

It features two viewing positions for watching photos/ movies/ album art from your device, near vertical for distance viewing & 30 deg inclines for close up viewing.

It's not a new concept of course but I thank Piers for his design with the same basic geometry as I've used. original

nb the dimensions of the stand are good for the squeezebox controller and probably most other devices too. I've included the visio file in step 8 if you wish to modify or better. please post your results.

I just saved the pic as is and printed it perfect size for the laser brand player. I also used a thiner plain black card still very stable and sturdy my daughter loves it(easier for her to watch movies) and enjoyed making
