Build your own iPhone! It’s simple and quick. Everyone can do it!

Yeah, you can also build your own iPhone. No IT genius required, just some ingenuity, …and perhaps some scissors, transparent duct tape and a cool printer. Yeah, a printer, because this isn’t the real iPhone, but rather a cardboard mockup. Here’s some photos of mine, in different stages of progress:

You can even fool your friends this is the real thing, if the photos are blurry enough. Just watch:

Looks cool, even though I never excelled at arts and crafts (and my skills didn’t get better by time). Plus, with the right angle, it should look just right (plus, you might do it better than I did). How? Here’s something that might help:


And that’s it! I would recommend using cardboard paper (should work fine on printers) instead of normal paper, to give the phone some strength, a steady hand and that’s it! …Well, until the summer, when we’ll want to play with the real thing!

  1. Now thats cool. My son would get a kick out of this.

    I’m not a Mac Fanboy, but the iPhone is F’in sweet! Conan had a cool parady video of the iPhone which looked like this one oddly enough.
