Over the coming weeks, you'll be able to watch the projects grow in complexity, and possibly see some epic DIY fails along the way.

There are plenty of smartphone tripod solutions on the market, like the GripTight or the Slingshot, but if you want a quick and dirty solution, come this way. You will need:

  • GorillaPod or small tripod

  • Cardboard

  • 1/4-inch nut

  • Ruler

  • Pen

  • Gaffer tape

  • Smartphone.
