I've also just ran it and it's simple but very effective.

One point - if you think of getting a cardboard to run it make sure that
you get one that the camera hole lines up with your phone. I didn't think
of this and spent five minutes wondering why it was very dark. Two minutes
of cutting later it was fixed but better to avoid the problem entirely.
