We were just talking about some speakers made out of stone, so it’s just a coincidence that this iPhone/iPod dock made out of concrete popped up on my radar screen on the same day.
But unlike those limestone speakers, this sturdy dock is made from cast concrete. The concrete dock was conceived by “guest designer” Aidan Conway-Stuart of obelisk. It’s cast in a deep grey color, and coated with satin sealer to protect its finish too.
The thing cradles your iPhone or iPod nicely on a cut-out section, which has an integrated channel for running your USB to 30-pin cable neatly underneath. The dock connector sticks out of the base, holding your iDevice securely in place. It doesn’t look like it would be easy to tip this thing over.
And if you happen to find yourself face-to-face with an intruder, you can always grab this concrete chunk and use it as a weapon. It looks like it could definitely do some damage.
So if you’re looking for a unique dock for your iPhone or iPod, head on over to Etsy, and you can grab one for $39 (USD). I’d actually like to see an iPad version – I think that’d look really nice too.
