Introduction: Airplane Cell Phone Stand FREE From a Cup Without Tools
I know this is not the most amazing build on here, but my grandpa always said the truly best inventions are the ones like the paper clip. Things that are very cheap and used a million times.
Have you ever been on a plane and there is no place to put your phone or tablet to watch a movie? Here is what I did.

Step 1: Get a Cup
Any old cup will do, I ordered a water and used a plastic cup.
Step 2: Poke 4 Holes in the Cup With a Coffee Stirrer
I used the coffee stirrer from a united flight and poked 4 holes about an inch apart. Then you crease the cup between the second and third holes and weave the stirrer between the holes as shown.
Step 3: Crease the Cup for the Desired Watching Position
Once the cup stands on its side, put your phone on it and crease the cup.
Step 4: Watch a Movie
If you are on a united flight, they have free movies if you downloaded the app before the flight.
