DIY iPhone/iPod Touch Dock
Noticed this DIY iPhone dock while trolling around on Flickr earlier; it's a bit old, but i couldn't pass this one up.
Apple included an iPhone dock with the first release of the iPhone but has since removed the dock as a prepackaged accessory. The dock, a little bit of plastic with some little connection bits costs a ridiculous $49 via the Apple Store. That price was just too high for Flickr user sayesbury so he came up with his own innovative and unique DIY dock using the iPhone's packaging.
I wanted a dock stand for the iphone, but I could not believe Apple want £35 for it.
Seeing as the iphone already comes with a dock plate, it was just a simple matter of glueing the dock cable to the plate and mounting it onto a box.]
You will have to trim the bottom of the dock plate so the dock connector will sit square on the plate.

very cool. I saw this a while back and thought it was great so I made one. Too big if you ask me though so I am working on another slimmer design...
