Many objects can be made by engraved Hylite technology. I made some of them, apart from the Zatsit robot and its accessories.

iStand, a folding stand for smartphones

I realized this as an exercise of style and design: From a format equivalent to that of the smartphone itself, how to make a photo stand for this smartphone?

On this occasion, I enriched this technology with a trick: the integration of round magnets in the Hylite, to make fastenings, active in two different configurations.

Here is the object, folded :

Then, unfolded

And finally, upright as a photo stand. Tilting is adjustable!
