Hey all,

I've been gathering valuable information from the forums even before i signed up as a member and the amount and the quality of helpful information here is amazing.
I never had any info to give back to the community in the subjects that i was reading up on, so when i created this i figured i should share it here.

Its an adjustable mobile stand made from LEGO parts. It can cradle a big number of slate phones, in landscape and in portrait without modifications, although with small modifications it can cradle pretty much every phone out there.
It was originally made to cradle my N1 for some Wiimote emulator action but anybody can use it in their own way.

Here is a video of it in action and a link for build instructions over at instructables http://www.instructables.com/id/Retr...-mobile-stand/

if you are referring to the yellow gear assembly part, i have made instructions on how to build that with regular bricks!

if you're talking about motorizing this that would be awesome
i didn't find my LEGO motor. i would so make a mod with the motor just for kicks. not very portable but it would be very cool!
