Introduction: Easy Tennisball Laptop Stand
Making a laptop stand is really easy! all you need is a tennis ball, a laptop and a hobby knife.
This photo is from version 1, I'll be making a second version because i accidentally ripped a piece of the cloth and had to rip it all.
So, let's start!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What Do I Need?
Laptop, any will do
Step 2: Begin Cutting
Cut in horizontal direction.
Note: in some tennis balls (mostly with black interior), the cloth is not connected to the rubber with strings, here you can make a vertical cut first, and then follow the seam. Skip the next steps then.

Photo 2: Cut
Step 3: Keep Cutting
Once you've started cutting, keep following the seam, this will give you a nice and clean cut
Note: If it is too difficult to keep the fabric on, you can also rip it totally out, like in my version 1.

Step 4: JUNCTION!
When you reach the first junction, just try to stay at the same height. Now peek in the ball and try to rip it with your hands (this works with balls with black insides, not with brown ones) , if you can't, then just keep cutting strait. When you are in the last sixth, you can rip the rubber in once, by opening the ball and cutting like on the pictures. Then turn it around and cut like that trough the last bit.
Step 5: Finished!
Now you can remove the dust and use it!
You can also combine, put them upside down, or even use 2 full tennis balls without any cutting.
