Printed Smartphone Docks

These 3D-Printed Wood Accessories Fit the Fairphone 2

— December 25, 2015 — Eco
Owners of the brand new Fairphone 2 smartphone will find these 3D-Printed Wood Accessories from 3D Hub to be some of the best ways to help outfit the new device without going against the smartphone's ethos. Created on-demand rather than in batches to help curb overproduction, the 3D-Printed Wood Accessories include a dock for placing on a desk or a bedside table and even an amplifier to help make music sound sweeter from the device.

Created using an eco-friendlier blend of materials including wood and bioplastic, the 3D-Printed Wood Accessories are a better alternative to other products on the market that are overproduced using harmful plastic chemicals. When ordered, the accessories are printed and shipped out, but are currently only available to residents of a handful of European countries.
