be able to just slide it into the dock"
We are proud and excited
to introduce the world to the ATC Ergo Dock. Trying many of
the docking solutions out there we were unsatisfied. For such high quality devices the current docks are subpar as they are made from flimsy plastic, issues docking/undocking and do not look good. After many discussions we knew it could be

The ATC Ergo Dock has been a
labor of love for nearly a year. Many
revisions went into this. We now have a
production ready prototype that is shown in the pictures and video. Without a doubt we wanted to make the
ultimate dock to show off your Apple device. Our dock is made from aircraft grade 6061-T6 aluminum and CNC’d to the
Please pledge and spread the word about our
project to make our ultimate docking station a reality. With your help we are excited to get our
product into your hands. We have fantastic rewards for you backers to
the right. The pledges will be used for
purchasing raw materials, tooling, CNC machining, bead blasting, anodizing, rubber
feet, 30 pin connectors, packaging and shipping. If we exceed
our funding goal we will explore additional options and features for our
dock.We say “our dock” as this is now a
collaboration between us and the Kickstarter community. All comments and feedback will be
It is important for us to keep processes
in the Pacific Northwest. The ATC Ergo Dock
is designed in Washington and made in Oregon. We believe every dollar that stays in the local northwest makes a difference.
We whole heartedly thank you
for taking your time to look at our project.
