Turn A Credit Or Membership Card Into A Media Player Stand

You're sitting on the aeroplane, you want to watch some music videos on your iPhone, smart phone, or other media device, alas you're stuck holding it the whole time. Unless of course you use this handy hack.

We highly recommend against using your Platinum Visa for this trick, but if you have old hotel key cards, perks cards or other non-essential plastic cards floating around in your wallet you can quickly turn them into a little portable stand for your iPhone or other small media playe r— this hack would work just as well for the Android and HTC Touch Pro we've got floating around the Lifehacker office.

All you need to do to turn your plastic card into a stand is make two bends. One bend about three quarters of an inch from the end of the card to create the "lip" for your player to rest on and another bend about in the middle of the card to create the "easel" back to keep it propped up.

If you need step by step instructions, check out the full tutorial at the link below.

    Can i just say how happy i am to see that even though the photo is clearly an iCarp of some sort, this post wasn't another "make a stand for your iPhone" article. Most of the stands/holders for iPhones will work with heaps of other gadgets too (unless they have a built in connector).

    Thanks Jason!
