Got a spare couple of hours ahead of you? Get busy with some paper, scissors and a magnifying glass – oh, and your iPhone.
UK artist Ricky Trickartt says of his paper iPhone TV:
“I’m not sure where I came up with the idea of making a little TV set to slot an iPhone into, but the thought came into my mind to use a magnifying glass lens to give it a nice curved CRT-like look to the screen. I copped this ramshackle bargain off eBay (complete with vital safety instructions) to make it out of.”
The handheld magnifying glass set him back just £3.95 ($6.80) on eBay, and gives the TV a really nice retro effect, with the glass making the video look like a higher-res CRT experience. [Trickartt via Recombu]
