GorillaPods are handy little flexible hand-like tripods that can attach a camera just about anywhere. If you like the idea but not the price, this DIY version offers the flexibility without the sticker shock.

Instructables user Matth3w shares a simple tutorial for turning some scrap wood, a handful of bolts, and some segments of Loc-Line modular hosing into a bendable tripod mount you can wrap around things and otherwise mold for stability on uneven or small surfaces.
