Make your phone stand in sky(just being poetic in saying made on board flight).

Not always are you offered with awesome in-flight entertainment. You might rather want to watch something from your phone and watch it hands-free.

Here is an instructable that helps you with the hands-free part.

First of all, The resources at your disposal are limited. The scissors, lights, matchbox, swiss-knife, screwdriver(no one carries a screw driver... just making a point) would have been dumped at the security check point. So, lets make the most of what is available.

Step 1: Air sickness bag & cup of water

Fish into the seat pocket for the Air Sickness Bag. Look for it frantically in case you want to freak you co-passenger.

Ask for a cup of water from the cabin attendant and gulp it down.

Step 2: Draw a circle

Draw a circle with the cup's rim on the top end of the paper. Don't expect your co-passenger to lend a pen. Toying around with Air Sickness Bag means you are on your own.

Step 3: Tear out the circle

Fold the paper along the circle diametre and tear out a circle that's about 3mm less in dia, large enough for the cup to pass through the hole.

Step 4: Insert the cup
