Rocket Sound Systems, a London-based company, has designed a solid aluminium gadget known as Stage 5 Dock, the world’s first Smartdock that is completely compatible with every type of iOS or Android device (with a standard Micro USB port). It is also the first dock to be introduced that is controlled by an app on the smartphone. It works conveniently with iPhone 5/5S/5C/4 (will work with 6 too), Tablets, HTC, Samsung, Windows Phone as well as other Bluetooth powered devices.
The company previously ran a 35-day crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter that started on May 13, and ended on June 17. The goal was to raise £5,000 within the specified period. The goal was successfully achieved and the company raised £8,458 out of 165 backers. As of now, the company is crowd funding its product in another campaign being run on Indiegogo. The company wants to raise USD 1000, out of which USD 117 has already been raised, with another 57 days left in the campaign.
It is not only unique in terms of its exceptional design but at the same time also comes along with some really handy features that increase its worth.
One of the most striking feature of the Smartdock is that it can convert any solid surface into a high quality speaker using its vibration speaker technology, which allows the users to listen their favorite music with an exceptional sound quality. The surface on which its placed acts as the wide speaker itself.
The users can also listen music while they are away, just by connecting their Smartdock to a Bluetooth powered device that features a music player. Moreover, its ability of working with different smartphones further adds to its worth. It is light in weight, and users can easily connect it to their mobile devices both at home and on the go.
Furthermore, the users can charge their smartphones at any time, with this Smartdock, without needing any wires. Video calls and messaging also becomes easy with this device.
The main specifications of Stage 5 Smartdock includes a built in 10 W vibration speaker, dynamic sound, built in battery, capacitive sensor and a wireless connection. Moreover, it also features its own app, that allows the users to modify Equalizer settings and much more. The Smartdock has been designed in four different colors; Black, Space Gray, Silver and Gold. Looks good and has been priced reasonably.
