    Hello to everyone!

    Some time ago, I built my own Docking Station out of LEGO. I wanted to dock both of my devices - my tablet and my phone - at the same time.

    I came to this after I heard of the kickstarter project of the All-Dock. But I wanted to have my own dock immediately. That's why I thought to build my own. First, I wanted to choose wood but then I rembered the good times, when I was a child and played with LEGO :rolleyes:

    So I started to build.
    Inside there is a USB-HUB which charges both devices and is for synchronization.
    Beside my tablet and phone there is also a place for my bluetooth speakers.

    That is what it looks (well, looked) like:

    But then I heard of the OnePlus One. Immediately I was very excited about this device. And that is why I chose to rebuild my Docking Station a bit (okay, I did it for passing the time of waiting as well :p).

    That's the result:

    I also made a video about it, however, this is the first video I've ever made. I would be pleased to get your honest feedback about my dock and the video.



    I'm very interested in how you like it and I'm looking forward to your answers :)

    Little annotation: I'm German and I have to apologize if my English isn't that good.

    Update:
    Pictures from the inside:

    I want to say thank you to everyone for your great feedback so far! You're great!

    Good one :D But the dock is in the top row of my shelf, so probably the 3 year old won't reach it ;)

    Looks really good and you did an awesome job but it looks a little big for my own preference. But awesome nonetheless!!

    No, that was a kind of "smash the past" ;) I wanted to throw it away as I didn't need it anymore. But they were landing in my bed, so there were no injuries ;)

    Thank you! You're right, it is quite big. The USB-HUB inside with 3 USB cables docked in takes up a lot of space.

    Do you have a different charger for your tablet and phone? I instantly started thinking of building my own as soon as I saw the title of the thread... Hope you don't mind if i borrow your idea! You don't have to worry though because none won't be anywhere near as cool as your!

    Basically that would be a good idea. But I don't want to make profit. I just wanted a Docking Station that worked for me. Besides that dock just works for exactly those devices. For each device I would have to do a few modifications (thicker or wider devices). For me that is no problem. But I actually could not make an instruction, I even don't know how I built it exactly :D (there were many versions until I was satisfied)
