Dock+ hits Kickstarter, a charging dock for iPhone 5, iPad mini or latest iPod touch
The Dock+ has just arrived on Kickstarter and it is looking to fill the void left by Apple’s failure to release an official dock for the iPhone 5. Dock+ is more than just a dock for the iPhone 5 too, it also will support the soon to be released iPad mini as well as the latest generation of iPod touch.
Dock+ is machined from a single block of steel, a material 3.6x more dense than aluminum. That means it doesn’t tip or wobble as you use or dock your iPhone. And with non-slip rubber bottom, it doesn't slide. Your iPhone 5 just feels safe and secure. iPhone 5 is particularly easy to scratch and scuff on its back surface. With Dock+, your iPhone only touches the soft rubber pad, so you can be sure it won’t damage or scuff.
Office. Coffee table. Nightstand. Kitchen. Place Dock+ around your home and office, everywhere you place your iPhone. Free yourself from the charging cable.
The dock+ is currently looking for pledges before it can be made a reality. It currently has just under half of its goal of $75,000 but still has 43 days to go. If you fancy being one of the first to get your hands on one should they make it to production, you can pledge a minimum of $59. This will secure you a dock and charging cable but you will have to provide your own wall power adaptor. The dock will be made available in black, white or raw steel and each dock can be used with an iPhone 5, iPad mini or iPod touch with or without a case.
What do you think of the Dock+? Would you be interested in getting hold of one?
