Remember the EverDock? It was the dock for every smartphone. The project was a huge success on Kickstarter with FUZ Designs receiving over $400,000 in pledges by 4,000 backers. In case you forgot, the EverDock is an elegantly designed dock that works with virtually every smartphone and tablet. It is very easy to assemble and doesn’t require any screws or tools to remove and install different chargers. If you are interested in purchasing the EverDock, you can get it from FUZ Designs’ website for $49.
The EverDock Go and EverDock Dash are two new products by FUZ Designs on Kickstarter. These are smartphone docks for your car. Just like the at-home model, the dock is made of high-quality aluminum and works with the Lightning, 30-pin, micro-USB and AUX connectors. It easily fits into your cup holder (EverDock Go) or on your dashboard (EverDock Dash). A small locking disc keeps the dock in place while the car is moving, but the dock can be removed by twisting it.
I love using my phone while I’m in the car for driving directions, playing music and using dictation for texting (don’t text and drive!). My phone is always in an awkward position, whether it be on my lap, in the cup holder or hiding between the center console and the seat because it slid down. The EverDock Go is a really great idea to keep your smartphone in one place at all times. It always has the display facing you and you’re never distracted trying to reach around to find where you left your smartphone. The EverDock at-home model looks beautiful, like it was designed alongside your smartphone. Almost like Apple created this dock with the iPhone 5s. The EverDock Go includes the same beauty and looks like the dock that car manufacturers would include in their brand new cars.
The FUZ Designs team is looking for $50,000 by May 16 in order for the EverDock Go and EverDock Dash to become official products. As of this writing, the team has successfully reached its goal with $57,769 pledged and 36 days left to go. To find out more about the project (or to pledge) click here. By pledging $39, you get the EverDock Dash (regular retail $50) in either silver or black, a micro-USB cable, an AUX cable and two locking discs. The docks are expected to be delivered in September, just in time for the new iPhone.
