Ergonomic Cylinder iPhone Docks

The ODOC is Very Stylish and Functional

— May 11, 2012 — Art & Design
The ODOC is an ergonomic iPhone dock with a style worthy of holding your iPhone. ODOC provides users with a comfortable and seamless way to use the iPhone and its various capabilities, while simultaneously charging. The ODOC product and design concept is currently a project on Kickstarter.

The ODOC features a simple, compact cylinder form, incorporating sleek and timeless design—with all materials and finishes complementing the iPhone’s distinct aesthetic qualities. ODOC is hefty: its cast aluminum body is NC-machined to precision tolerances, and inlaid glass disks finish the ends of the cylinder. The hardware is stainless steel. Non-slip features include an elastomeric foot and an o-ring that also provides purchase when you twist the cylinder. The piece is available in tough powder-coat finishes that include high-gloss white, clear-coated satin-aluminum and matte-black.

A smooth ball-bearing mechanism holds the cylinder at multiple positions, so the iPhone’s touchscreen is easily set to the perfect position while the iPhone is charging. Comfortably type an email, browse the Internet, or chat on Facetime without worrying about wearing down the battery. ODOC’s adjustable viewing angle, compact form and substantial heft make it the most versatile iPhone dock out there. 

The weighted dock (about three pounds) allows for single-handed iPhone removal. The ODOC also holds and charges the iPhone with or without a case, and includes multiple backrests with varying thicknesses to adjust for the perfect fit. The backrests store inside the cylinder when they’re not in use.

ODOC is upgradeable to iPhone5: The iPhone5 is widely anticipated to have a smaller connector. Just four easily accessable M3 screws are all it takes to replace ODOC's circuit board with one that has the smaller connector. The upgrade is easy, fast and inexpensive. There's an M3 allen wrench that ships with ODOC: no other tools are needed.

ODOC is on Kickstarter now at a discounted price. Be the first to own "The Coolest Dock Out There." For a very limited time, ODOC can be purchased for September delivery at just $109, including USA shipping.
