DIY cardboard iPhone dock

While the iPhone 3G included several new features that its predecessor lacked, one thing it did not include was a dock. Instead of shelling out $30 to buy Apple’s iPhone 3G dock, [Roland] and the folks at Geeky-Gadgets.com decided to design their own cardboard iPhone dock. While this doesn’t include any fancy features like dock connectors or audio line-outs, it looks like a quick and budget friendly way to give your iPhone 3G a place to charge and sync.

  1. stop complaining, start submitting. I didn’t even expect one today b/c of the holiday. This model is janky, but it’s a good idea. don’t like it? redesign it!

  2. I am surprised by the harsh comments. At least the people/person that thought this up was kind enough to share a concept they had with the world. So it doesn’t flash LEDs or blow something up. It could prove handy to someone that can afford a dollar or two for a piece of cardboard rather than spending money on something that does more than they need it to do. The idea could prove helpful to someone else that wants to do something similar without having to really put a great deal of thought into it.

  3. Did anyone actually watch the whole 8 mins?
    I watched 30 seconds and realized it was going to be 6 more of him cutting and folding and skipped to the end.

    Doesn’t seem like all that glue huffing, cutting and folding was worth the effort when you could get something about as stable by cutting juice box in half and washing it out.

    I mean if you’re too pretentious to just lie it down on the desk while it charges, are you really not going to fork out $30 for a dock?

  4. seriously though, is this site hack a day or instructables?

    and tbh, that stands a pile of wank anyway. and i hav made better, but thats not hard to do. i still wouldnt put an instructable up on it, purely because its a waste of everyeons time. if you want one, make one yourself. get something unique.
