A pencil iPhone stand. How brilliant is this invention? I love it. And it is such a simple DIY invention, anyone can make one. All you need are five pencils and four elastic bands, et voila--your very own iPhone stand.

And, as featured above, you can use your iPhone stand to watch a live presidential inauguration from your desktop without holding your phone in your hand. That is all it takes! It's almost like having your own flat-screen cinema. Okay, not quite.

But although the iPhone stand is extremely geeky and not the most luxurious gadget in the world, it is such a basic bit of DIY-ing it is almost genius. Now that is what I love about it.
