Cult of Mac reader Ryan proves that Trix are not just for kids with this quick iPad stand made from an empty cereal box.

“I got the idea when i first got my iPhone 3G two years ago… At the time I made a stand out of a paper Starbucks cup for my iPhone. I was reminded of that this morning after scouring the Internet for a practical and affordable stand. My cousin finished a box of Trix and as she was making her way to the recycling bin, I decided to do a little recycling of my own.”

The finished stand should support your iPad in either portrait or landscape, plugged in or running on battery.

He’s reckons the project took about 10 minutes — here’s a complete how-to on his blog — and if you’ve got on how to improve his design, let him know.
