The Gilligan’s Island iPad stand - Macenstein

The Gilligan’s Island iPad stand

Now that Apple has announced it has sold over 2 million iPads in just two months, it’s pretty obvious that the planet’s resources will soon be depleted by 3rd party iPad accessory makers looking to make a quick buck. What the world needs now is a renewable source of iPad accessories.

Well, faithful Macenstein reader Dejan sent of pics of his rather unique iPad stand he made from Bamboo Chopsticks.

As we all know, bamboo is a very fast-growing, strong, and easy to replace source of woody goodness. Plus I imagine it can be easily transformed into a teepee for Barbie dolls. How many iPad stands can claim that?

[UPDATE: Faithful Macenstein reader Billy Boyd Cope was inspired to try it out. 20 minutes later, you can see the results]

    I need an iPad stand, and it’s not easy shopping for one. Now I may just go to the store and buy a buttload of chopsticks. Even I could build this awesome thing.

    The stand (s) aren’t the same. Notice pic with iPad in Landscape mode and there is one chopstick on front. In portrait and w/o an iPad that propping stick isn”t there. What gives???

  7. ArtOfWarfare says:

    Can this be scaled down to iPhone size?

  8. ArtOfWarfare says:

    possibly with match sticks?

    No way. The Gilligan’s Island version would be made from coconuts.

    Actually, as I think of it, the iPad would be made from coconuts.
