The whole thing is just an at-home assembly of some hardware-store-bought PVC pipe and joints, painted to match the metallic finish of the laptop. Easy peasy, right?
One commenter on Lifehacker, where we spotted this project, suggests that you could make the stand stronger by "double-stuff"-ing the PVC pipe. using a little lubrication (dish soap does the trick) and a rubber mallet, you can slam and squeeze a 3/4-inch-wide length of PVC pipe into a 1-inch wide pipe. It provides a little reinforcement and reassurance that your precious machine won't take a tumble.
