Remember when I was talking about how the Post-It note is a simple solution to a life problem? I’ve officially invented another one: the iPhone tripod.
The challenge: to create a tripod to film a video on my iPhone using only the resources in my apartment
The solution: cutting a slit in each side of a paper cup, then using the slits to hold the phone.
How I got there: the realization that most objects are not good at supporting an iPhone, and that cups were pretty much all I had to work with
Also, I got over functional fixedness and saw a cup as something that can hold a phone and not Keurig coffee! Score one for creativity class!
