The Jane Eyre Dock is the work of Etsy user 'inbook,' who either was intent on making a statement about obsolescence or simply never liked Charlotte Brontë's books.

As time passes, demand forces continue to urge manufacturers to make more discreet, subtle charging docks for gadgets. With the Tesla-inspired wireless charging still months away from retail outlets, the Etsy user inbook put his DIY skills to work and developed a decorative middle ground.

The Jane Eyre Dock is precisely what you imagine it to be: a cloth-bound, hardcover book with an integrated dock inside. The 19th-Century classic has been outfitted with Apple's typical 30-pin connector and is compatible with the company's entire catalogue of iPods and iPhones. At $50, however, you may have to reconsider the dock's lack of speakers. Regardless, an innovative creation! Stats for Classic Literary Gadgets Trending: Older & Chilly
