    Hey there!
    I couldn't find a docking station as good looking as our great phone, so me and a friend locked ourself in our secret laboratory (our Fuzzlab: thanks for your support! :D) and made a custom one!
    We went through three different stages, from the first concept to the final render:

    Then we used a 3d printer to make different prototypes, actually they're 3. We worked on a stereo speakers system and tried to use the cable as the main design element (how beautiful is that red flat cable?:rolleyes:):

    After all this we've been finally working on the locking system to charge the phone safely: originally the clip was on the front side of the dock, but we moved it to the back.

    Now, here we have a couple of pics of the current stage, showed side by side. Actually it can be used with or without a case (personally i'm using a tpu one) and audio comes out pretty loud:

    And back

    We're having a lot of fun designing and printing this docking station and i hope to update this thread really soon with many other pics! Any feedback will be precious, so tell us what you think!;)

    Thank you! :D:D:D

    PS. A big thanks to our italian community for their support :)

    EDIT n.1(09/22): since someone planted a seed of doubt in my fantasy, we've been imaging a bamboo version of our dock. I mean, it's only a render and print that would be almost impossible, but personally i like how it looks. Thoughts?

    And, of course, a black one

    EDIT n.2 (09/23): Hey guys thank you so much for your support and love <3
    we're patenting the design, people from the headquarters said they will keep me informed about whether and how they will support us. BTW thank you again, you're amazing!

    EDIT n.3 (10/01): Guys thank you so much for your support, you're amazing! :D
    We're working on the details, so here's a new prototype of the black one :rolleyes: and as you can see buttons on the bottom now are visible and completely touchable :)
    ps. sorry for the iPad quality, once upon a time a used to be a different person lol.:rolleyes:
