SAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD / IWORLD 2012 — I’ve been looking for a docking station for my 11-inch MacBook Air ever since I picked it up a few months back. Not only has there not been anything that has caught my eye, but there haven’t been many available to even look at.
But there’s a Kickstarter-backed docking station that is on display here at Macworld/iWorld that is on my radar: LandingZone.
LandingZone is a sharp-looking docking station that is feature-laden and portable. It has 4 USB ports, an ethernet port and a Kensington lock slot — something the current Air lacks on its own. The sleek design lets you add functionality to your MacBook Air without it getting in your way.
The company behind LandingZone, infiniWing, used the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter to assist in bringing the product to life, eclipsing its goal of $50,000 by over 60 percent. The LandingZone isn’t readily available yet, but the team at infiniWing hope to have it available for its backers within the next two months and bring it to market shortly thereafter.
