Gimmepower iPhone Dock: More Like Gimme Money

 |  |  |  |  |  September 7, 2010


In an interview with the Litchfield County Times, York Street Studio co-owner Linda Zelenko said, “If you look at all the stuff out there, all the objects are these ugly plastic things,” she said. “That was basically the genesis of making something that kind of bridges the gap between an ugly plastic thing and a beautifully designed piece to integrate home furnishings and technology.” That something that she was referring to is this “sculpted ceramic hand that holds, charges and syncs your iPhone or iPod while plugged into your computer,” otherwise known as a dock.

The GimmePower is a spin-off of The Hand, a cast metal hand meant to do one thing and one thing only – hold your TV’s remote control. That’s the level of luxury we’re dealing with here. Which is why I find it funny that the dock has such a tacky name. But if you’re tired of ugly plastic things, try the GimmePower. You can order it at Neiman Marcus for $180 (USD). Stylish, expensive, funny name – it’s just like an Apple device.
