Paper clip tripod: Use only when desperate

The folks at Photojojo have twisted and bent a clip into a contraception that can hold a point-and-shoot.

Besides holding sheets together, the humble paper clip has plenty of other uses. Not only is its slim tip great for poking at small reset inserts on gadgets, we're pretty sure MacGyver can jump-start a car with it. Now, you can add one more use to the paper clip's resume.

Inspired by the paper clip iPhone stand on Lifehacker, the folks at Photojojo have twisted and bent a clip into a contraception that can hold a point-and-shoot. However, given that the bottom of the stand is flat, we're not sure how well it'll support your shooter on uneven surfaces. For that purpose, we think we trust the Gorillapod more.

Nevertheless, if you need to prop up your camera the next time but don't have a tripod, try searching around your desk.
