Kickstarter, the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects, has raised over $1 million for one of its latest featured concepts, the Elevation Dock, surpassing its goal of $75, 000.
Designed by Casey Hopkins from Oregan, the Elevation Dock is the solution to the frustrations of undocking from lightweight docking stations currently available on the market. The Elevation Dock makes for easy undocking by simply pulling your phone up and works without a case. The ease of undocking is achieved by a special low-friction connection, the weight of its solid metal construction and tacky rubber feet.
The dock is made from solid aluminium and comes in a variety of surface finishes similar to those found on Apple’s unibody Macbook Pro’s and iMacs. The result is an accessory that is heavy, durable and attractive. The Elevation Dock compliments the craftsmanship associated with Apple products far more than its current docking stations.
The dock’s acoustics make the iPhone sound great and less tinny than when laid on a desk, so speakerphone and FaceTime calls sound better. It’s angled back 8 degrees, so you are perfectly in frame of the video screen.
There is also the Elevation Dock+ for the addition of a shielded Line Level audio out and a USB wall power adaptor.
