A bean bag chair for your iPhone and other DIY solutions

bean bag chairI've seen some really neat iPhone holders out there. From the expensive to the do-it-yourself ones. I rather like the ingenuity of the DIY ones. I have mine on a bean bag. It doesn't fall and it holds itself in the lanscape position well. All you need is to get a bean bag stress ball preferably made of vinyl-like material got mine from a dollar store. Now my iPhone has a rubber skin on it so it adheres to the bag quite nicely. I tried it without the skin and it slides a little.

So the ball serves as a de-stressor AND holds up your iPhone.

I also tried the business card holder and it does work but I find it flimsy, you can't touch the iPhone without it falling over. I much prefer my bean bag to this but hey it works if you're in a hotel somewhere and need a quick holder.

Here are more DIY holders if you are interested:

Instructables: Simple business card iPhone/iPod stand.
iPhone Savior: Cut out the packaging the iPhone came in and used it as a stand.
iPhone Binder Clips: I would just be careful of the metal scratching your iPhone.
CD Stand: They used a bunch of old CDs and glue. It is both a stand and charging station.
Pencil and rubber band stand: yes people, pencils and rubber bands.
iPhone stand made of laser cut acrylic scarps: at first I read scarf!
Paper Cip iStand: use a plastic coated paperclip so you don't end up scratching your iPhone.
iphonehacks: Wooden charging station and stand for the carpenter in you.
iphonehacks: using a rotary phone as a holder...were getting more creative here.
Geeky Gadgets: they created the carboard iPhone holder and they have a template for you to use.
