As iPhone docks go, this latest Kickstarter product called the MiDock certainly appeals, both in terms of aesthetics and quality of manufacture. In fact MiDock set out with the aim to ‘create the dock Apple would have made…’ I don’t think they are far off at all.
This British made product is extremely simple but immensely elegant. The dock itself is formed from one solid piece of aluminium, which helps keep the weight to a minimum but adds extreme durability. The unibody design has also been crafted with sound channels, allowing sound to pass through the dock making sure your iPhone still pumps out tunes at a level of quality you are accustomed to. Don’t be concerned that the lightweight aluminium dock will be unstable either, as the MiDock is fitted with suction pads beneath the base allowing the dock to be securely placed anywhere around the home.
Another nice feature is the ability to adjust the height of the lightning cable from the dock. This means that you can use your iPhone with its case still on, certainly an issue with some other docks I have seen. The MiDock is also fitted with protective foam strips preventing unsightly scratches on the phone when docking or undocking.
This distinctive dock has been seeking funding through a Kickstarter project and we are pleased to say that funding goal has been surpassed and full-scale production is imminent, plus there is also a dock for the iPhone 4/4s in the pipeline. For more information on the MiDock including the range of colors available or to make a pledge to get one of the initial docks hot off the production line then visit the MiDock Kickstarter page here.
Thanks to iPhone Rumors.
