I’m not really sure what to make of this one though it is starting to grow on me. A Paris-based start-up company with website www.dockdock.io just sent me a sample of their new product. The slogan on their website is “Make Your Tablet Great Again!”.
What you get for €28 is essentially 4 magnets that hold your tablet to your fridge door, along with a magnetic adaptor and 3 metre charging lead for your tablet with a LED light at the end.
The tablet end of the lead is micro-USB – I’d have thought offering USB-C as an option might’ve made sense.
With the package you also get various clips and a companion Android App (that’s a link) which they say turns your fridge into a Smart Fridge using your tablet. Well, there it is, you have all the links above to progress this if you wish.
You do of course need your own laptop with power supply as neither these nor the fridge are included in the deal.
I’m guessing if you were thinking of mounting your old tablet on the fridge, this is an easy option and the website has lots of detail. Possibly in this case the best way to demo Dock Dock! is with a short video on my YouTube channel… https://youtu.be/vdcXCadTNtQ
Some time later, that's not a bad home for the tablet and easily removed... next job is to change the single power socket for the fridge into a dual so my tablet charger gets a new home down the side of the fridge. As good a place as any.
Meanwhile here’s the DockDock! App on Playstore…
And finally, all wired up on my desktop with App showing the time, security off - convenient!
