I'd rather not sit down.

I'm looking for an inexpensive standing desk for use in an office where everyone sits.

My office unfortunately doesn't have plans for standing desks, and I'm interested in suggestions for standing desk alternatives when you're stuck with a sit-down desk. I like to get up during conference calls, but it's tough taking notes without having to sit back down.
Ideally, all I'd need is a surface big enough for a small laptop or my iPad that is at standing height for me (I'm 6'3"), and can be collapsed or otherwise hidden so as to not be unsightly when not in use.
It can be free-standing, or maybe sitting on top of my sit-down desk, or there is also a 10-12" diameter pole directly behind my desk that I could possibly bungee something to.
Thoughts? Ideally it wouldn't be an incredibly expensive solution, in the off-chance that the higher-ups don't take a shine to my re-working of my workspace, and I have to pitch the idea entirely.
