Phones are mobile, your dock should be too!
What’s a goDock?
Our smartphones are a part of us: they provide us with information, entertainment, and are the portal to communication with our contacts, friends, and loved ones. If you're anything like us, you carry your phone with you everywhere you go.
The busy lifestyles we have keep us moving and it is likely that at some point you have found yourself without your power adapter and USB cable when you run out of battery, which is exactly when you need them most.
We created the goDock to solve this problem.
The goDock is a mobile docking station and the only iPhone accessory that allows you to keep it all together while you’re on the move.
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.
goDock was designed to fit any iPhone whether it has a case or not without having to make any adjustments.
Its unique shape with rounded off corners, smooth finish, and compact nature makes it easy to insert into any pocket or backpack without resistance. This ergonomic shape is incredibly convenient when you are on-the-go.
The goDock is the world’s first docking station designed to truly be mobile. Throw it in your book-bag, briefcase, or pocket, and GO!
Do your cables and headphones often look like little elves sneak into your home and tangle them up every time you turn your back!? THEY WON’T ANYMORE.
Everything stays together! When we are on the move we have to carry our headphones, the wall adapter, and the USB cable. Forget having to cram all of these in your pocket and risking the chance of losing something or having it get all tangled up.
The goDock effectively organizes it all.
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.
Compatible with most Apple mobile devices.The goDock's multi-faceted design allows for a single dock to work with iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, and several of the iPod generations including the classic and nano.
Another great goDock feature is its ability to turn into a kickstand that allows for widescreen viewing. Perfect for watching videos or sports matches in landscape mode!
The goDock is 100% recyclable, greatly reducing the environmental impact that we have on our planet.
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.
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.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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 our backers deserve 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.
If you know of anyone who would benefit from owning a goDock please share!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Due to the minimal design of the goDock 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.
YES! If you pledge towards the ( + ) level, we will provide you with the appropriate adapter. We'll collect all pertinent information at the end of the campaign. (EU/ US)
Due to popular demand we have made goDock compatible with micro-USB ports. Meaning that it will work with HTC, Samsung, LG, Motorola, and other Android phones.
Because of the goDock's design a cube shaped 5W adapter is required. We strongly recommend the ( + ) pledge levels since they have the cube and a cable included.
