$500,000+ on Kickstarter and counting: Elevation iPhone dock by Portland’s Casey Hopkins


$500,000+ on Kickstarter and counting: Elevation iPhone dock by Portland’s Casey Hopkins
I… Yeah. I don't even really know where to begin. Elegantly solving a problem for design conscious iPhone types with a beautiful product. The fastest funded Kickstarter project ever. More than $500,000 raised so far---roughly 700% of its target goal. And it's still got 37 days to go. And oh yeah, it's from Portland. Meet the Elevation Dock: the best dock for the iPhone from Casey Hopkins. I have no words. And I'm not the only one drooling over it. A who's who of Apple fanboys, design aficionados, and Internet tastemakers are singing its praises---from John Gruber of Daring Fireball to Jason Fried of 37signals. In a word, exquisite. The attention to detail. The pitch. The rewards. Man, the product is only rivaled by the mastery of the Kickstarter campaign. I wouldn't be surprised if Casey Hopkins' name starts getting lumped in with Jack Dorsey as the next CEO of Apple. Okay wait. That would be kind of surprising. But still. You catch my drift. Don't wait. Get your own. Or two.
