    Took about 5 min to make - real cost =$0.00.
    no accessories around for us anymore and I didnt feel like ordering so here ya go.
    Looks like us playbook faithful will have to make our own "ecosystem"

    I really just wanted something other than my charging pod to rest Playbook on so when i am watching a longer vid/youtube I can just rest it on there on a side table while i doze off on the couch and not worry I will crush it in my sleep.

    P.S> the fingerprints look nothing in real life like they do in the pic. I had one of my reading lights shining on it and it just seemed to pickup the fingertip and what way!

    A suggestion for continuous design improvement: make the air holes in a BBRY pattern. Or is that patent infringement?

    Another suggestion. Make the back out of an iPad Gen 1. Might cost a few $$$ but it would sure feel good putting the screws into it!

    Keep up the good work I am still working on my second holder this is basically an holder for when you are on the John, my first prototype I caught my nads on and had to take 2 days off work (back to the drawing board ) and this time no sharp edges.

    Nice. Has a rustic look. I built a beauty out of LEGO but then I destroyed it smaller to hold my Z10. Holds the Z10 perfectly while I play GameBoyAdvance games with the WiiMote. ( I'm not good with tools. ) Will post picks later!

    The right angle adapters can be either 90 degrees or 270 degrees. One will have the connection port at the front of the device while for the other the connection port will be at the rear of the device. Which is which? That depends on the orientation of the port on the device. The HDMI port on the PB looks to me as if it is oriented so that the 90 degree adapter will stick out to the front of the PB.

    I had to buy a 270 degree HDMI adapter to use with a Dell monitor and this educated me a little on the subject.

    Another point is that there also some adapters where the connection is in line with the device. When installed on PB if you can find one the connection should go to the left when facing the PB screen.

    I saw one of those in the dollar store and I played around with it but I didn't look like it would have the strength- like it would buckle under the weight.
    Mine is over engineered for sure.

    Why do you need to take your tablet to the bathroom?

    Picked one up months ago.I think it was only a dollar at the Dollaramas in Canada.
    Works great in landscape mode,but the stand is too big for PB in portrait mode.

    Ice started using polymorph for everything. It's little plastic pebbles, you warm them up with water and they "melt".

    When melted, you shape them into anything you want.

    Run it under cold water and it turns it into a solid plastic housing.

    If you get bored of it, just run it under hot water again and repeat

    Yeah I checked out the link you posted. Would be useful for some other ideas I have. What is the cost for the pebbles?
