The world’s cheapest iPod stand

At Proporta we look at most things with the thought of making people’s lives a bit easier…

That’s how Guy (one of the bigwigs) came up with the Magnetic Cable Tidy after weeks spent untangling his headphones fifty times a day, and how Diego (in Sales) came up with the Stereo Y Splitter Cable after nearly losing an ear when the person next to him got up a bit too quick.

And if that just happens to give us an excuse to get a bit creative, then even better…

Proporta Product Designer, Martin, has used his love of construction to make an iPod stand out of a paperclip (we kid you not).

We could’ve written the instructions down, but it’s far easier to show you, so take a look at the video below and watch Martin create the stand in front of your very own eyes. If you’d like to take a look at the Proporta You Tube Channel there are plenty more videos for you to watch.

    Love the idea! I was looking for a long time to find the perfect stand for my iPhone and found the iBend. What a great and simple gadget. And check out their nice designs…
