The Foundation Dock has arrived on Kickstarter and looks to provide a docking solution for your iPhone that is quite different to anything else currently available. The dock has a very strong flexible cable which is there to allow you to easily position your iPhone in any viewing angle that suits you. It can be twisted and bent into just about any shape then locked into position to give your iPhone the ultimate support.
The cradle can be used with or without a case and fully supports the weight of the iPhone in any position you choose. You can also get an in-car charging accessory which offers a 12-volt in-car charger which has been designed with a recessed USB port to keep the cable rigid and your iPhone rock solid in your car. Should the iPhone 5 arrive with the expected smaller dock connector, the Foundation Dock will also be available to support that too.
The Foundation Dock is certainly a very interesting docking solution and unlike anything I have seen before. If that cable is as strong as it looks then it could be a really nice flexible docking solution or car mount. If you like the idea of the Foundation Dock, you can become an early adopter with a pledge of $45 or more to secure one cable and aluminium base should they make it into production. The Foundation Dock currently has around $10,311 of pledges and it needs to hit over $37,000 to gain enough to be funded; it still has 30 days to go.
What do you think of the Foundation Dock? Could you see your iPhone sitting in one of these at your desk or in your car?
