About

"No more haphazardly plugging in a phone and leaving it lying about"                    -TrendHunter

"The goDock is pretty ingenious, managing to pack a lot into its pocket sized body" -CultofMac

 It's not about the dock, it’s about what you can do with it.

Our busy lifestyles keep us moving and it is likely that at some point you have found yourself without your headphones when you want to listen to some tunes, or without your power adapter and USB cable when you run out of battery, which is exactly when you need them most. 

Being hands-free at all times is also important, we aimed to create something that would be there for you regardless of where you are.

goDock- the mobile docking station that keeps all of your accessories together

It's about time a dock that does more than just sit on your desk came along. 

Our frustration that eventually led to the creation of this dock stemmed from years of having to deal with misplacing our charging adapter, tangled cables, and not having either of these with us when we needed them. We were also surprised by the lack of usefulness of other docks, especially because they are too bulky to take anywhere and only serve one purpose.

Store your headphones, cables and adapter

goDock neatly organizes your USB cable and power adapter in a compact package, always ready to go!
 

Do your headphones look like little elves sneak into your home and tangle them up every time you turn your back? THEY WON'T ANYMORE.

It's a dock for when you want to place your phone upright

It serves as a stand so that we are not forced to lean our phones against objects that are not meant to support our devices.

Compact enough to take anywhere

Its unique design with rounded off corners and smooth finish makes it easy to insert into any pocket or backpack without resistance. This ergonomic shape is incredibly convenient when you are on-the-go. 

 

Charge on any outlet or wall

Excellent wall charging station. It eliminates the excess cable and annoying tangling, making it virtually cord-free. You can use the goDock to charge your device on outlets and power strips, or directly connect to your computer through USB. 

Perfect for landscape view

Another great goDock feature is its ability to turn into a kickstand that allows for widescreen viewing. Great for watching videos or sports matches in landscape mode. 

Lightning/ 30-Pin & Micro-USB Versions

Works with any smartphone that has a charging port under the phone. Two versions: one compatible with any Apple device, the other with Android and micro-USB devices. 

We recommend that if you order the micro-USB version that you also add $15 so that you receive a cube shaped adapter that is compatible with goDock's cavity.

Design Process

The current goDock is the culmination of months of trial and error, but just as any great idea it started as nothing but a sketch on a napkin.

After a few revisions several prototypes were created to test for functionality. Once we found a design that we were truly happy with we smoothed out the kinks and made sure all of the tolerances were just right.

Early prototypes

The docks used in this campaign are fully functional prototypes and we need your responses and support to enhance the product. If there is anything that you feel we are missing please let us know and we will do our best to implement it into our design. 

We look forward to your feedback. 

If you don't already have one, we will send you a compatible adapter & charging cable (iPhone or Android)

 We need your help!

We have recently switched manufacturers and have been able to cut down costs and make the goDock more affordable. However, tooling, production, and ultimately shipping will require a great deal of capital and it is simply something we cannot afford on our own. 

Rather than through injection molding or cheaper procedures the goDock is made of high quality material and requires a very precise (and expensive) CNC process. Although it is costly we believe this is what the world deserves and with a little help it is economically feasible.

We have turned to you guys in order to make our dream of bringing this product to market a reality. The team is able and committed to bringing the goDock to the world, all we need is a bit of assistance in getting to the finish line.

Risks and challenges

The production process will be simple and quick. Until we attain more funding however and are able to expand we will be limited in number of units we can produce per week.

We are working with a small, precision machining firm that will begin fulfilling orders as soon as they come in. The docks are CNC'd out of solid billets of aluminum and are anodized in the same facility.

Our long standing relationship with our manufacturer should help smooth the process along, the only thing preventing us from moving forward is the fact that a deposit is required to place an order.

Once we are funded we will proceed to collect all information from backers necessary to the fulfillment process. If there are any hurdles as far as manufacturing or shipping goes our backers will be the first to know.

There will undoubtedly be obstacles along the way but we are fully prepared to undertake any and all complications that may arise.
