Elevation Labs, a industrial design and engineering firm achieved successful funding to manufacture the simple Elevation Dock.
Late last year the firm launched a Kickstarter project to raise $75,000 to manufacture the aircraft grade aluminium docks with the same styling that Apple have made famous in the last few years. The firm rose a whopping $1.46m but then had to contend with Apple changing to the lightning dock, which was swiftly and commendably taken care of by the company.
The dock is a solid block of CNC machined aluminum which will not only fit in anywhere, it will look cool and feel expensive at the same time. When making the dock, the firm focused on something that would be able to be operated with one hand, with the dock staying put when you detach the phone, and they sure got it right!
When using this dock, you feel that Apple themselves produced this and that is a testament to how well this company have performed. It almost raises the question as to why Apple have not bothered making this, as it would sell so well.
This unit will work with most iPhone cases and is ideal to use on a bedside table or to prop the phone up during FaceTime calls. The dock comes in matte black, black, blue and red and even comes in a glass bead blasted “Apple finish” to fit with all of your other devices. It starts at $89 and the company will ship to the UK.
