Just got mine today, thanks for making an inexpensive useful product!
Got it today in the mail. Looks fantastic! Thanks alot. Good luck with your business!
The final Dockems should finally be arriving from the manufacturer this week and we will be shipping them out ASAP. We'll be posting an official update soon.
end of april is here. any new updates?
Hey Ricardo, glad you like my project. You can visit our site at www.dockem.com and there are some options for buying Dockems on the order page. Thanks.
Hey! I Really interested in your project and how I can buy tree for me?
Any thoughts of switching the logo so the em is under the oc? It would look cleaner and make more sense! I love the logo, just an idea! Can't wait to receive my dockem in the mail!
Lauryn, if things go well with our first batch of the black Dockems, there will definitely be different colors coming in the future!
Congrats! I was wondering; any chances for different colored dockems in the future? I would love a white one to match my ereader and my room.
Congratulations. I hope that you are manufacturing this in the US!
Congrats! May this be the first of many successes on your path!
Congratulations Chris!! Let me know if I can do something for you in Mexico.

congratulations on reaching your goal christopher! I am very excited to receive my very own dockem in the mail.
almost reaching the goal!!!
thanks for the response chris. i'm still going to back this as i'm curious to try the dockem out...good luck!
Nancy, we've looked into expanding the Dockem, and have decided to keep the current design. Unfortunately, the Dockem becomes less effective for thinner devices as the docking space gets bigger. For now, these thinner devices provide us a much larger market, and so we want to make sure that the Dockem is ideal for these devices. I'm sorry to disappoint, but thanks so much for your interest, and be sure to check in every once in a while; if things go well with this design, perhaps the Dockem 2 will be the answer for your iPad in the OB case!
Just wanted to check if the Dockem shelf thickness is still only 0.787"? And if it's increased perhaps to fit more iPads/etc devices in cases? Have you done research on what thicknesses of which products should be supported? Thanks!
Joseph, because the Dockem is designed to be more of a little "shelf" rather than a snug fit, the droid x fits into it just fine. You can see the photo in the video and on dockem.com of a droid x in the Dockem, and this one even has a case on it. As far as moving the Dockem, the Command strips that are coming with the Dockem can't be moved to a new location once they are set (they can still be removed, but are not reusable - you can get new ones at your local convenience store or order them online). We are currently testing another adhesive solution for the Dockem, however, that would allow you to move it from room to room, so stay tuned for updates in the near future!
i have a droid x and im sure it should fit, where the camera is there is a bulge for the top area of the phone and by the bottom its smaller. will one side of the mount have to be bigger than the other side? because of the style of the phone??? Also can we move the dock from room to room? or will it loose its grip after a while???
Thanks for checking! Oops I meant the iPhone 3GS Otterbox Defender case is 0.8" and iPad OD is 0.94" --- what about making the universal wall dock default thickness 25mm or 1"? As the OD cases are super popular and probably the thickest around, and then your Dockem could pretty much accommodate everything :DDDD I'm in for 2 if that happens!
Wow, I am glad you asked Nancy. I looked into this and realized that my website is wrong and I had done the conversions wrong (I'm used to working in mm for the design purposes). The Dockem is actually compatible with any devices under 20mm thick, which is about .787 inches. Looking at the tech specs here: http://www.otterbox.com/iPhone-4-Defender-Series-Case/APL2-I4XXX,default,pd.html for the Otterbox says it's only about .66 inches, so yes, it should work! Let me know if you have any more questions.
Will this fit the iPhone or iPad in the Otterbox Defender case? Are they over 0.6" thick...? Thanks!
Yes, the Dockem will work with the Apple microfiber cover. Will post pictures tonight.
Will the emdock hold my ipad while still in the apple microfiber cover?
Just added 3 more reward levels, to get 2, 3, or 4 Dockems. Let me know if there is something else you guys want me to add as a reward! Thanks again for all your support!
It's too late now (or not?), but I wish there were a middle ground between $15(which I pledged) and $65 (which is too much for me, as much as I'd like to have 5 of these).
Anyway to pledge a little more and get an extra one or two?
Great idea, simple and effective. One way you can feature the major benefit to your system is to show how flexible it is. For example, I can see using one kit to hold the iPad, but then using a single, right side piece somewhere in the middle and now it supports my phone or my iPad. Also, this system is great for people that change devices, it's unlikely that anyone sticks to a particular phone or device very long... either the individual finds something new or the manufacturer changes the design. Third party accessory builders are always playing catch-up when new form factors hit the market.
I think this makes a great universal design that's elegant in its simplicity. Best of luck.
If you want to add the international shipping, you can simply choose the reward you want, then it should allow you to put in your own pledge amount. So for example, you can choose the $15 reward, but actually pledge $23. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any problems. Thanks for supporting my project!
Hi, I really want to go for the pre-order option, but there is no way to add the extra $8,- for international shipping. How do I solve this?
I can't even imagine life without one or even sleeping from 11:47-11:52 without one either!
Very good video Chris. This Moyer family are bright people, good looking too! I posted it to my FaceBook and will help spread the word so hopefully you will get the funding you need. Best of luck to you.
What a great idea, I know this will be up and running in no time. Great Video....... I will also post this on my Face Book to spread the word. Great job..... Hope to see you at camp this summer, Uncle Bob passed this to me. Great Job.....Patti
Hahaha great video man, best of luck. If you're ready to make an infomercial ready for TV let me know, I'll don my Billy Mays costume from haloween and we can start filming ASAP. My rates are very reasonable.
Great! Like the video. You and Dena did a good job. Pledges are coming in. I posted it on my Facebook and will send out some emails. Love, Mom
