Cheap and Easy Hacks for Your Expensive High-Tech Gadgets (28 pics)

Posted in Random » Interesting   31 Jul 2013   / 14849 views

Use inexpensive ear plugs to replace a busted earbud.

Keep your charger from breaking so easily with a spring from a pen.

Take selfies using your earbuds!

It’s witchcraft, but it works as long as they’re the kind of earbuds that have a volume +/- button on the cord.
1. Aim the camera with the earbuds plugged in to the phone.
2. Press the volume + button.

It’ll minimize selfie-arm (that horrid condition) and make you feel kind of like a middle school photographer, which is always a plus.Turns out anything can become a smartphone stand, like a cassette case.

Or a gift card.

(Gift cards also make easy earbud holders.)

Back to stands: You can use a wallet.

A hairclip.

Or a toilet paper holder.

Make a tablet stand for 50 cents from a scrap of wood.

Or use Legos.

Suspend your tablet over your bed with coat hangers.

Everyone’s heard of the toilet-paper-roll-iPhonpeaker, but adding Solo cups can really amplify the sound.

Make a solar charger out of an Altoids tin.

Create a charging station so all your gadgets don’t get tangled.

Cut out a cheap and easy charging holder from cardboard.

Or make a pretty one from an old lotion bottle.

Make a TARDIS charging station.

If you don’t need your GPS anymore*, use the stand to hold your sunglasses.

Use a binder clip to make a car stand for your phone.

Make a quick jogging band for your music out of a sock.

Meet your new best friend, Sugru.

Sugru can also cushion a sharp MacBook Air edge.

Use a binder clip to keep your earbuds neat at your desk.

Or, if you have a MacBook, stick them to the screen.

Make an iPad cover out of a composition notebook.

If you happen to have both a busted earbud and a stethoscope, today is your lucky day.

And if the stress of your plugged-in, modern life gets to be too much, crack open a cold one and call it a day.

My carpet is made from Lego.

#25 yeah - because it's not like the cable is going to get in the way, eh?

Anyway - you should use the magnet on the cable, not on the buds. Less likely to damage the buds that way.
