Use your laptop for a tracing backlight.

Caveat: Only do this if your device has a glass screen. You don't want to do this on an Air!

I've never used a computer for a lightbox, but I've used a window on a sunny day. It's awkward but it works when you don't have one around. I also have a glass coffee table, mostly because it looks good, but the fact that I can throw a light under it to use as a light table is certainly a bonus.
