Smartphone Hood

This is how I made a smartphone hood to reduce sun glare.

  1. Cut a piece of cardboard from a cereal box and formed it around the phone.
  2. Folded a flange around the rear perimeter.
  3. The flange slides in-between the phone and leather case for attachment.
  4. Painted the inside surface flat black to minimize reflection.
  5. Retained the white outside surface to minimize solar heat absorption.
