Eco Dock / iPhone/iPod docking station

Eco Dock
Eco Dock

The one area lacking in an iPhone/iPod Touch is their tiny built in speakers. The sound is mostly lost before they get to the user’s ears, resulting in music that sounds rather dull. The solution is designing an egg shaped dock that allows sound to be captured and reverberate. Made with silicone, not only does it enhance acoustics silicone also an eco-friendly material. One of Eco Dock’s main functions is allowing the user to charge his or her device by solar power. Eco Dock has a built-in USB port that can be hooked up to a solar rechargeable battery pack allowing the user to charge the device wherever they are.
