There are many docks available on the market, but many are not universal and only work with either the iPhone/iPad or Android. On Kickstarter, the VARIUS DOCK exists to solve this problem.

The VARIUS DOCK
The VARIUS DOCK is created and designed by Michael and Enblue Technology. It is elegantly designed and works with all brands (Apple, Samsung, HTC, Kindle and more). It works with lightning cables (iPhone 5/5s/5c), 30-pin (pre-iPhone 5) and micro-USB (android devices). The first model, VARIUS DOCK SINGLE X1, is a dock for one. It works for holding tablets, smartphones and phablets. This model comes with a USB wall charger and tablet support inlay. The second model, VARIUS DOCK DUAL X2, is the dock for two. It comes with two slots for two different slots to charge and sync your devices at the same time. Although they might not like it, you can charge an iPhone 5s in the front slot and a Samsung Galaxy S4 in the back slot. This model comes with a USB cable, wall charge and tablet support inlay.
The available finishes on the VARIUS DOCK: gold, silver, white, black, walnut, oaktree and bamboo.
All models are compatible with iOS 7. They are made out of either a single block of aircraft aluminum or the finest hardwood. There are seven finishes available: black (aluminum), silver (aluminum), white (aluminum), walnut, oaktree, bamboo and of course, gold. Each model comes with a wall charger made for Samsung and Apple. The gold one is plated with real gold.
How to Pledge
The project is looking for $50,000 by Saturday, February 8 at 1am EST. It currently has 21 backers with $2,235 pledged. If the project gets the funding by the end date, the docks will be delivered by the end of April. The minimum pledge is $1. The single pack, X1, (surface of your choice, except gold, adapters, cable and charger included) is $69. The dual pack, X2, is $79. If gold is the one you want, you can play $499 for the X1 and $549 for the X2. You can pledge your amount here.
The VARIUS DOCK looks perfect next to the iMac like it was made by Apple.
