Foundation Dock. Basic dock for iPhone
For iPhone there are 100500 any docks. I exaggerate, naturally, but the range of accessories such is so great that, apparently, new in this area to think up is already unreal. It not so. Flight of design thought wide, flight of thought inventive is infinite. When these mental streams unite, inexpressible things on a joint of technologies and progressive design turn out. Directly such reminiscence on me was made by Foundation Dock docking station.
The accessory consists of 2 parts, not very well what from which is a self-sufficient product, and together they represent very stylish piece which will perfectly look in any interior and near though what computer of Apple.
The main part of Foundation Dock — is turned of the 1st whetstone of aluminum base with the built-in loudspeaker in capacity 4 watts and resistance of 4 Ohm, 4 ports USB 3.0 (обратносовместимы with USB 2.0) on a lateral side, a microphone, special USB port on the top panel for a complete cable, the mini USB 3.0 socket for connection to the personal computer and an entrance for the 5-volt network adapter.
Pay attention to a 40-centimetric cable, it flexible, but at all this keeps the set form and possesses sufficient rigidity to detain iPhone weight in though what orientation, whether it be portrait or landscape.
USB коннектор at this cable metal and quite big that is made specially for dock in what there is the corresponding seat mentioned above. Thanks to such design the cable reliably sits in dock, also in an additional accessory — a car the adapter:
By the way, кабельки will be on though what taste and color:
As, practically, and docks:
At all this the developer, Brandon Yamavaki (Brandon Yamawaki) from World of Simple Design, will use not colored aluminum, and anodized that abruptly. Process of anodizing of metal, in fact, its weak erosion when particles of paint get to the micropores which were formed in a material and aluminum is actually painted over deep into. In other words, even if the anodized metal to scratch, paint to tear off it will not turn out.
Foundation Dock at the 1st look, very ordinary outside, but stylish piece which by closer consideration possesses wide functionality. It both compact acoustics, and improving experience of communication in FaceTime dock (remember the built-in microphone?), and an USB hub with USB 3.0 support, and simply beautiful support for iPhone. By the way in the device even there is an ekranirovanny audioexit for connection of external speaker systems.
The complete cable too appeared very functional and, in fact, in itself can act own sort as dock and a support as in the look attached to the personal computer, and being simply located on though what equal surface.
And what iPhone 5 with new dock port? Everything is all right. As the device will be announced and it becomes absolutely clear about specifications of the new socket, Foundation Dock will get a suitable cable, and the choice with what from them to order an accessory will be provided to buyers: with usual 30-pinovy or new and small.
The ordinary shkurny question for Yamavaka especially sharply is not necessary, as for production of so technological piece he asks from the society Kickstarter only $37 thousand which be required for purchase of the corresponding production tools and equipment function. Till the end of fund raising at the moment of writing of news there are 30 more days, and $11 thousand at the developer already in a pocket.
Accessory price the following: $15 cost to a car the adapter, $30 — a cunning cable if to the last to add besides dock, the sum of $100 will turn out. All set will cost $115. If it will want to receive instead of unpolished aluminum the anodized docking station of opaque dark color, then to the sum designated above it is necessary to add $40 more. In October Brandon Yamavaki plans to start creation, in December-January to begin accessory deliveries. [Kickstarter]
