Turn A Coffee Cup Into A Smartphone Cupholder Mount For Your Car

If you've got an extra cupholder you aren't using, this car mount will take you just a few seconds to make. You don't even really need to go into the detail they do in the video, you can just eyeball the measurements and cut up that coffee cup to fit your smartphone.
