Do you own more than one type of mobile device, and wish there was a dock that can support smartphones of all shapes and sizes? Look no further, because All-Dock, a supposed universal dock, is in the works.
Dittrich California Inc. is gathering funds on Kickstarter to develop and deploy the ‘fastest docking station in the world.’ The maker claims that the docking station is compatible with virtually all brand and size mobile devices. From iPhones to HTCs to Kindles, the All-Dock will hold up almost anything you happen to own.
So what’s the concept behind the All-Dock? Basically, it’s a plastic block that has wide grooves punched in so that most mobile devices will be able to sit snuggly inside the indentation. At the heart of the dock is a USB hub that allows people to connect all sorts of charging cables and redirect them to where the phone or tablet is situated. Best of all, the block has a tool-less design, which means people won’t have to jump through hoops to insert a new cable into the dock.
The All-Dock comes in three sizes:
Small: 220 x 113 x 61 mm / 8.7 x 4.4 x 2.4 in
Medium: 220 x 142 x 61 mm / 8.7 x 5.6 x 2.4 in
Large: 315 x 172 x 63 mm / 2.4 x 6.8 x 2.5 in
