The Dock that understands you need to do more than holding your iPad!
There are a lot of nice iPad dock's and cases available, true... But in my 3 year search to find the ultimate companion to use my iPad on the couch or in bed I didn't find anything eye-candy enough.
My biggest frustration was that all available docks would only hold my iPad and just were not built to use it on your lap or to hold a plate, glass, keyboard or anything else. They just weren't stable enough to use on the couch, in bed or on a table and they were not designed to use your iPad while eating, drinking etc.
That's when I decided to design and make one of my own! Docked: simple things made simple...
The evolution of Docked
Docked is designed for everyone!
Hey businessmen, students, childeren, grandparents or housewives! Docked is there when you need your iPad and when you need it handsfree: in the kitchen, on the couch, on your dining table, on your desk, in bed, in the car, on your nightstand or anywhere... And it also works great and looks gorgeous as a beautiful stand for your iPad and iPhone!
Docked is also for the Android and Windows tablet and phone community!
It's not a secret that I love Apple products, but most popular Android and Windows tablets and phones can also be Docked! If the thickness of your device is between 5 and 9 mm, it will fit! So Docked is for everyone!
How will you use your iPad & Docked?

- on the couch using the iPad as a second screen or just watching a movie
- playing a game with a wireless controller

The gorgeous quality of the wood, the details and finish will match great with the look and feel of your iPad!
Docked is made from FSC certified teakwood. Teakwood is prized for its strength and durability. The details on Docked are beautiful: the engraved logo, the rounded corners, the finger-tip cutout, the docking slot, the cut-out left/right side areas and the built-in protection feet! Finished in natural, light brown or cognac they all look gorgeous!

Risks and challenges
I hope you all believe in this project as much as I do. From the first sketches to the final prototype I have worked hard to ready this project for the Kickstarter launch, and now we will continue to work hard and make sure that if the project reaches its funding goal all Dockeds will be shipped to all Backers on time!
I have teamed up with a very reliable Dutch manufacturer who has a lot of experience with wood products and CNC machining of wood. His company delivers excellent wood products and high quality design products! As soon as we reach the minimum production quantities, the manufacturer is ready to start up production.
My manufacturer has enough supplies and capacity to make a lot of Dockeds and if a machine breaks down there is a back-up!
In case of an overwhelming demand we will of course keep you informed in the upcoming days/ weeks about the delivery timetable.
Although above mentioned there is always a risk of unexpected delay or surprises, but for me and my supplier our goal is to overcome any obstacle and to deliver the best Dockeds to you.
If you have any questions please let me know, and for now I want to say THANK YOU for your help and support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
