Special: How to make an iPod docking station

Looking at the prices of dock bases from the apple brand, I'm sure you'll be interested in making a practical base by recycling materials we already have at home. We can also use it to charge and synchronise our iPod without removing it from our case.

These are the materials and tools we will need:

- The lid or top of the iPod case.
- The dock adapter included in the box.
- The iPod USB cable.
- A piece of cardboard in the same colour as our iPod, DIN-A4 size, to be able to print on it.
- An indelible marker pen.
- A box cutter or a more precise tool, such as a X-ACTO.
- Scissors.
- Contact glue or similar for gluing plastic.
- Paper glue (we can use the same as before).
- A hot melt glue gun or a tube of silicone or similar.
- A multi-purpose tool for cutting plastic and filing (you can use a file for filing and the cutter for cutting, but it will be more difficult to do so).
- Some adhesive tape.
- A rule.


How to make a tripod

In this article we will show you a simple trick and how to build a practical stabiliser or accessory for capturing images with any camera, whether compact, SLR or camcorder, although it is not exactly a tripod, but more like a monopod. It is ideal, for example, for taking panoramic images.

Homemade monopod

It basically consists of a system using a rope that allows us to block the Y-axis of the camera and a possible movement while taking pictures or recording video.

It is very cheap to make (we can even have the materials already at home), it can be stored and transported without any problem, it does not weigh and most importantly, it is practical and can be assembled in less than 20 seconds.

We can create it from a tripod, as shown below, but if you don't have one, read on, as we show you how to do it from scratch below.
