Transportation designer Paul Priestman has shared his hack for making a smartphone stand from an egg box to avoid “bad angles” and painful “phone arm” when video calling during the pandemic.
In the video, the PriestmanGoode co-founder demonstrates “the perfect lockdown life hack” of how to fashion a phone holder from just an egg box and a pair of scissors in under two minutes.
The idea came out of “necessity”, he explained, as people continue to work from home during the coronavirus pandemic, leading to an increased amount of time spent on digital devices as the only form of communication.
