High tech meets low tech with this simple corrugated cardboard stand, that makes capturing document images with your iPhone a snap. If you've ever attempted to scan a document by just holding up your phone, you'll know that a blurry image is often the result. This simple stand created by University of Cincinnati DAAP student Kyle A Koch, is an elegant and green solution that holds both the phone and document in the perfect position to get a sharp capture. The stand comes flat packed for just $16 through the Ponoko design store.
Of course if you insist on something a bit more high tech, you could always make a scanner using Lego.
