Minimalistic DIY iPhone/iPad/iPod stand combines design with practicality
When Andrew Kim was working on his project, he probably did not expect to become popular among online communities of DIY enthusiasts and Apple-devoted fans with his custom iPad/iPhone/iPod stand. Claimed to be among the best hand-made “iDevice” stands ever, Polyply, as Andrew named it, has been meticulously crafted out of milky-white acrylic plastic and birch plywood with the goal of being just as minimalistic as Apple's gadgets are.

Andrew admits that it took him some trial and error before he was finally happy with the appearance and the ergonomics of Polyply. The stand is not meant to be a commercially available accessory yet, but who knows, one of its future versions may end up on your desk one day. Good job, Andrew!

Why the hell would you need an iPod and an iPhone? What if you have an iPod nano?

He should have put the iPod at the bottom like the iPad it looks dumb up top on it's side. Otherwise it looks awesome!

Nice concept but not the best design ever. When I say this I don't mean that it looks bad, but many different stands using the same concept as this will look EVEN BETTER in the future.

Normally i would say this is a stupid idea but there are some dumb arses that dont mind owning three devices that do practically exactly the same thing in practically exactly the same way. ipod, ipod that makes calls aaaaand a giant ipod. i mean its just like doing a zoom on the same device 1x zoom, 2x zoom, 3x zoom

Yea, it seems like a good idea as a display to hold/charge those devices...I'd like to see the placement for each device have its own power source built in so you can just plug the device in and it gets charged without all the cord business. The right side seems off to me and I think that line would look better square. Put another kickstand on the side so you can rotate the display to watch a movie on the pad in landscape. Wrap a nice piece of aluminum on the outside edge and then he's got something to really go to market with!
