Aerial Photography

Fill a balloon with helium, use the fishing wire as a cable and attach your Smartphone to it. Let the balloon float up, then trigger your Smartphone’s camera shutter button using a shutter remote. We are not responsible for any damage that will happen to your smartphone as a result of this 🙂

DIY Projector

Use a lens or magnifying glass to make a hole in a box. Secure the lens/magnifying glass in the hole. Put your phone upside down inside the box supporting it with something. Place this projector in front of a blank wall, press play, close the lid and see your shots appear on the wall.
