About this project

The Palmer iPhone 5 dock, inspired by the acoustic guitar.

Palmer is a wireless acoustic iPhone Dock that amplifies your music wherever you go. We wanted to create a dock that was not only extremely useful, but that we, ourselves would be proud to display in our office, home, or wherever we go.

We set out buying all of the necessary tools and materials we would need to start designing and building. We produced prototype after prototype, each one being more refined, and more functional than the last. After doing our research and showing countless musicians our idea, we finally built our final product.

The materials we used and the construction of the Palmer are exactly the type of top notch quality we set out to achieve. We wanted something that was hand crafted and affordable, but didn't look and feel like it. We combined a couple of the best woods we could find (to achieve the highest standard of acoustic sound). The authentic pick guard gives it a classic acoustic guitar look.

The coolest part is, the dock is completely wireless. It uses natural acoustics to amplify the sound. You can easily place it anywhere in your home or office without fussing with cords and trying to find an outlet.

After months of hard work, building and rebuilding, we've finally perfected the product we envisioned. Now, we need to get our first batch of materials so we can streamline our idea into a reality.

We're all set up and ready to go, we can't wait to start building. We know you'll be as excited as we are when you hear it for the first time.

Risks and challenges

This isn't our first product and we'll have no problem fulfilling all of our orders.
We have all of our materials sourced and the building process has been streamlined. We will be able to produce the Palmer dock efficiently, while keeping a quality product as our customers have come to expect from us.

We know exactly what to expect and are ready to take on a few hundred or a few thousand orders.
