Camera DIY tripod for sensation!

hi, I made a camera tripod for htc sensation, which needs nothing special to make.
first, I brought my old unused camera tripod, which has ability to remove its connection with the camera part, you can see it in the picture below:

then, I measured the width of its edge to make a part to connect the phone on it and put the part instead of the old part.
after that, I cut a part of thin wood to replace it with that part,
then, I needed a part that can hold the phone, so I used one of my unused mobile covers and glued it to a part of a wood and made the phone holder.
finally, I glued the phone holder to the part which I made before and made something like this:

then inserted it to the camera tripod stand:


sorry, I'm not good at English.

Very cool! I've bought cell phone tripod mounts on amazon but my HTC Sensation seems to be too big for them. LOL.

You should work on design before mass production
