Here’s a cool looking new iPad accessory – the LEGO Custom Dock Kit for the iPad Retina and iPad mini, from The Daily Brick.
This is a custom dock for your Apple iPad (with Lightning Connector) made entirely out of Lego. It has been designed to stand your iPad up on your desk and allow you to charge it or sync with your computer. This dock also has an added back support (with rubber grippers) to reduce stress on the connector.
To stop the cable connector moving around, it is held firmly inside the dock using Lego clips, you can repeatedly dock/undock with no issues. There is a slight backward angle on the dock to help you use it when it’s on your desk. You will receive all the Lego parts required to build the dock.
There are 79 pieces in the kit, and the assembly instructions are available online (in case you lose those that are sent with the kit).
When Apple stopped making iPhone docks, The Daily Brick made a LEGO iPhone dock – and now they’ve extended the line to iPads that use Lightning connectors.
The LEGO Custom Dock kit for the iPad Retina / iPad mini goes for £19.95 – around $30. You can see more detail and place an order on The Daily Brick’s product page for it.
