About this project
Can we make great things better for you?
Nothing stays on for long, tomorrow can be different. The new iPhone7 has arrived, the new Apple Watch Series 2 as well. The iPad Pro has been recently introduced and requires a larger base. The variety of Apple Watch bands is growing, dimensions and weights as well. The magnetic charger has got certain limits to keep the weight of the watch in place. In particular for the popular nightstand mode, "tower" docking solutions for the Apple Watch are not ideal anymore for all upcoming variations. So we put our heads together and came up with a future proof solution which gets rid of the cable chaos and organizes all your devices in one place. And we even included a unique and cool solution for our travelers
Meet EVOLUS 3, the only dock you need, made exclusively for your Apple devices, including iPhone7 and Apple Watch Series 2
So here it is. EVOLUS 3. We redefined the classic W3 dock ( you guys might surely remember Michael`s Kickstarter success last year), taking all your wishes into the development approach, adding multiple and unique features to make it as much convenient for you to charge all your devices in one place...and in style. And it will work as well with the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and the Apple Watch Series 2.
EVOLUS 3 is modular built and offers the flexibility to be upgraded with new modules if ever needed. And there is an extra external 2.4A USB port for charging many things, like the new wireless Airpods.
A very cool feature is the dock in dock solution. Need to travel? Just take the Apple Watch module with you. You can even install your genuine lightning cable and use it as a duo dock.
Docking the Pro like a Pro

Check out some of the possibilities EVOLUS offers. No other docking station on the market has that
EVOLUS Art - A World Premiere
When we were working on the new EVOLUS an idea came up to combine Art and Technology. Can we turn a docking station into a piece of art? Ambitious, got it. Well, we took some art images, printed and laser cut them out and voila, EVOLUS Art was born. The whole team got so excited.We showed it around and got many wows and cools, convincing us to move further. Long story short, we teamed up with an ambitious artist who really liked the idea and we implemented two paintings of his great work and we created the world's very first Art Edition docking station

From concept to development
...we worked very hard the last couple months to come up with this beautiful solution
Leave your cases on
Any questions left? :)
During the creation of EVOLUS we considered many ideas and build a couple of prototypes
Get on board now and support us here. We got some cool stuff for you and really great prices. Shipping within the US, Europe included! Since this project is running from Europe, Kickstarter is pre-set for the EURO. We are showing US $ prices as well, based on today`s conversion rate which has been quite stable for the last months.
VAT: Only for backers living within the European Union, we are required to charge additional 19% sales tax - Sorry! This is added at checkout as "shipping fee". Direct shipping from the US, Europe, and Australia
Where the money goes and Christmas problems solved
All ready to go for production, the funds here will be used for final tooling and material purchase. We work with excellent and experienced suppliers. Delivery starting in November is absolutely realistic and we guarantee you to get your EVOLUS definitely before Christmas (btw. makes a cool present, especially for whose where it is hard to figure out what to give)
The Enblue team in Germany is experienced in handling large amounts of products and doing logistics all over the world. Enblue has a proven experience in manufacturing and we got logistics in place as well. Our US logistics is based in Jacksonville, FL and has handled shipments for years
What others say
Well, we are starting to promote EVOLUS and so far we got great feedback from those we showed it to
Michael, Sales Executive at a Mercedes dealership:
Andrew Moreno, The Tech Spy.Net:
"I received the designs and have to say the W3 2017 is awesome. What a great update to your existing dock. Quite frequently we say people's follow up products as not being very good but you certainly have put that to bed. I love the fact you still keep all three products together but incorporate the side USB and the removable Apple Watch dock which I especially would use"
Our European backers will get their shipped out of Europe, no customs or further VAT issues. Our US backers will have their units shipped direct from the US, Aussies shipped directly from Down Under :).
This Kickstarter will be organized, handled and processed by Enblue Technology GmbH of Germany
We just got our hands on these mock-ups. And we needed to try them on EVOLUS. Do you think this will be what we think it will be:)?
Risks and challenges
We know what it takes to deliver on schedule. The experience in design, engineering, and manufacturing for over 30 years provides a good base to handle this project, even dealing with unexpected problems.
Our working prototypes are the results from months of development and testing and we are ready to move into serial production. We got most of the tooling in place and selected reliable suppliers. This campaign has been funded early, we were able to start further production preparation directly after that
However, there is always a risk of potential delays in tooling and schedules for materials and shipping.
These risks can never be eliminated at 100%, even if we feel we got all issues covered. We planned this project same as others, But due to our very flexible production processes, we don't see here any serious obstacles we can't handle in time.
We understand that given the opportunity to be here on Kickstarter and to get support within the community is also an obligation and we will update you frequently as well as we always will appreciate any input on the project as well.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
