Venus of Cupertino iPad Docking Station

if your love for arts is as strong as your love for technology, then we thought the Venus of Cupertino iPad Docking Station might be of an interest to you. instead of the usual docking station, the Venus of Cupertino offers you a lady of curvaceous form (read: plus size) that will dutifully hold on to any second, third, or fourth generation iPad. the dock itself appears to be just another art sculpture, until an iPad docks to it, transforming it into a whole new sculpture that marries art and technology. created by one Scott Eaton, the Venus is hand-cast in museum-quality resin and has a standard 30-pin USB cable integrated onto the Venus’s abdomen for syncing and charging.

iDockAll iPhone Dock by Wiplabs

to be honest, we think The OC Dock is the best iPhone Dock money can buy ever, but the practical side of us begs the question: what if we want to charge and sync older iPhone and iPod, or even an iPad? rather than exploring ways around it, you might just want to go with the iDockAll iPhone Dock by Wiplabs. though the objective is the same (i.e. to dock your iDevices), the Wiplabs concept is a slightly different ball game: the dock is essentially a metal block that has no built-in docking pin; instead it has purposed cut slots to accommodate that the standard Apple Lightning or 30-pin connector, so that you can use it with any generation of iPhone or iPod – even the good’ol iPod Classic. in short, you get one dock that will have both your old and new iDevices covered. with the cable in place, the dock also doubles as a cable stay, making sure that you cable don’t fall off the desk when it isn’t connected to your device.

Bluelounge MiniDock for iPhone 5

looking to cut the clutter in your gadget-laden life? well, you can start by getting rid of your iPhone 5 charging/syncing cable with this nifty little accessory called MiniDock for iPhone 5. if the ‘MiniDock’ sounds a somewhat familiar to you, you’d be right: it was introduced a couple of years ago for the iPhone 4 and now, it is being redesigned for the iPhone 5. the concept remains the same: it is designed to work with your Apple USB power adapters, allowing you to charge your iPhone directly from the wall outlet. and that’s all to it. simple and functional, just like the iDevices you own. just think of it as an ultra portable iPhone dock that lets you charge anywhere where there’s wall outlet. and since it is a dock, it props up the phone and off the ground, you can therefore easily steal a glance at the charging status and also not accidentally kick your device which will inadvertently happen if its on the floor. available for the US, UK and EU, the Bluelounge MiniDock for iPhone 5 can be yours for $39.95 each.

The OCDock – iPhone Dock for iMac and Apple Displays

if you are an obsessively tidy person and an Apple (products) user, then our bet is, you haven’t own an iPhone dock because there isn’t any that could make your desktop any less clutter. but that would have changed if you had met The OCDock earlier. The OCDock was an overwhelmingly funded project on Kickstarter (successfully funded late last year) and for good reasons. crafted from a solid piece of high-grade aluminum, each dock is glass bead blasted and anodized to perfectly match your iMac or Apple Displays, and the fact that it appears to function without any cables, makes it looks like it is part of your Apple machine. but then, where is the cable? that, my friend, is another beauty of this dock: it still has a cable, but one that is paper thin, measuring a mere 0.18mm or 0.007″ thin, that runs under the base of your iMac and back up into one of the USB ports at the back.
