This is a DIY trend we need a lot more of: custom iPhone docks made from awesome and random objects, like toy dinosaurs. That works on so many levels that maker rockabillyjon, who posted the homemade dock to Flickr, should market the thing. Who doesn’t love a good brachiosaur?
Bronkie might–might–have been marginally cooler.
The Flickr set includes some in-process shots and the whole project looks pretty simple. Cut an iPhone-shaped slot in your favorite object and make a hole for cabling. Voila! Now your favorite random object can be used to charge one of your favorite useful objects. It’s a win all around.
