This nifty Instructable shows you how to make a tripod for light-weight cameras by cutting up a tennis ball.
As the author says, “The inner edge of the tennis ball is rubber, which makes a good non-slip, non-scratch foot.”
Technically it’s not a “tripod” because it doesn’t have three legs, but hey, it’s still a cool and cheap way to create a stable camera mount in a pinch. — BEN POPKEN
