The OCDock Gives Your iMac A Built-In iPhone Dock [Kickstart This!]



I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect iPhone 5 dock, and I think I’ve found it in the OCDock. Built from high-grade aluminum and designed to seamlessly integrate itself beneath your iMac or Thunderbolt Display, the OCDock stays out of your way and keeps your desk free from clutter. It also appears to be completely wireless.

It’s not wireless; it actually utilizes a paper-thin cable that runs under the foot of your iMac and into one of its USB ports. But unless you turn your iMac over or spin it around, you’ll never see a wire.

The best thing about OCDock is that it sticks to the base of your iMac or Thunderbolt display and appears as if it’s always been a part of it. Not only does that mean less clutter on your desk, but it also means your iPhone is always in easy reach — right above your keyboard.

The OCDock is fixed down with a super strong reusable tape, which means you can’t knock it over, and you don’t need to hold it down when undocking your iPhone. And when you want to remove it, you can do so without leaving any residue.

OCDock will be available in silver to match your iMac, or in a matte jet black for those who would like it to stand out on their desk. There’s also an OCDock Mini that’s designed to be used with iPhone cases. The OCDock isn’t only compatible with the iPhone 5, either — it also comes with a traditional 30-pin connector for older iOS devices.

But before it can enter production, the OCDock needs your backing. It’s currently on Kickstarter and looking for pledges between $5 and $5,000. To guarantee yourself an OCDock as soon as they begin shipping, you’ll need to pledge $55, which is $24 less than the OCDock’s final retail price. The project ends on December 22.
