DockBox - iPhone Dock | Home-Made |
I thought for a long time to do a home made iPhone Dock (docking station), but I always crossed it with a lot of other things (like screen LCD, Splitter USB, headphone out / mic, memory card reader, etc.), but every time I encounter Another problem in the planning of this (Perspex - too expensive / could not catch up perfectly, etc.), so I decided to split the projects and make the Dock to iPhone in a separate project.
Let's start with the pictures:
I took an old computer door, I marked the same size piece cut and began to cut the top of the dock station (where the "Adaptor" will be goled):
I marked the cut size and shape of the Adaptor:
(you will see the next updating, why did the holes above) :
I glued the iphone cabel to the adaptor:
All glued with hot glue gun:
And the result:
My desktop (the mouse and keyboard cabels pass through the box)
And for Linux and Open-Source fan's:

Very cool, you obviously put some thought into this.

I agree, very intuitive. It looks great and very professionally done. It would be cool to see a USB hub and maybe a SD reader in there too.

Well, as i said, i was planed to make a all-in-one box, but i allways had trouble with somthing (LCD screen\camera dock and so on...), so i decided to make the most usfull thing in one piece, and the other in another project.
