Polaroid cartridge as iPhone stand

Polaroid is a victim of the digicam revolution, but its artifacts already speak to the ages. Patrick Ng's iPhone stand, made from part of a used cartridge, is a perfect instant in using the old to enhance the new. Gallery [Patrick Ng's Photoset] Thanks, Mark and George!

    I haven’t encountered a single iPhone user who has a need for a stand.

    polaroid is giving up on film, save those now collectable cartidges! (hand warmer hack: take old polaroid cartridge, snap off one section of springy metal, rip foil bag battery out of case, slide metal under outer sleeve of battery to short out two circular terminals. Warms up good. Never wasted a fresh battery but I wonder if it would make a time delay incendiary or just burst corrosives all over you? Anyone?)
