Make a Tripod Out of a Paperclip!

Of all the species of office supplies, none is more adaptable than the wily paperclip.

Over the millenia, paperclips have evolved to form chains, lamps, and, surprisingly, a house in Saskatchewan.

Now introducing the latest incarnation, the paperclip tripod!

A couple of strategic bends transforms the humble paperclip into a stand for your camera.

Scrounge a couple of clips from work and tuck them in your camera case.

Then when you need a quick shot of you and your best mate at the coffee shop, just whip one out, prop your camera on it and shoot.

The stand will hold a point-and-shoot horizontally or vertically with a little balancing.

Bending and paperclips: the solution to so many of life’s problems.
