"Elevation Dock" on Kickstarter
The Kickstarter record made by Lunatik a year ago has now been replaced by ElevationLab and its kickstarter product "Elevation Dock." It's praised to be the best dock for iPhone ever. You can first take a look at how it works through this video:
On kickstarter.com, with a pledged goal of $75,000, it has already reached $934,834 and still has 68 hours to go. It's backed by a stunning 8,625 people. It's the design that's so "Appleesque" (as the NYTimes says). It's funny that this dock didn't already exist!
The key distinctions of this dock from others out there in the market are this:
1. It allows for smooth and seamless undocking.
2. It allows for docking with or without a case.
3. It's not the ordinary mass production dock; it's tailored from solid aluminum and has gorgeous surface finish.
The website says: "Elevation Docks are individually CNC machined from solid billets of aircraft grade aluminum, no expense spared. The result is a level of precision that can't be achieved through molding or casting. They feel heavy, strong, durable and look gorgeous."
