    Adam Dock Station

    Has anyone else heard of or seen a dock for the adam??
    I was thinking there should be one that you slide the adam into.
    The dock would connect to the following ports on the adam:
    HDMI
    USB
    Audio
    Power
    On the back of the dock there would be the connection to go to TV, power supply, and USB connection (USB hub built-in).

    Anybody else have any ideas or tweaks?
    Would anyone else want something like this?

    @talmeeno Thanks for making it sound like a block of s#@$!

    The reason I came up with this idea is because the adam does not have a docking port like so many other tablets do....

    I don't know about anyone else but i would like to have a nice place to put my adam when trying to show something on the TV or charging it at night.
    Instead of having the wires just hanging about...they could be managed up to the dock (I hate seeing wires).
    I will sketch some ideas up tomorrow in between my classes (i am a university student) and post them soon.

    WARNING: I may not be the best at drawing. However, these will be preliminary and then I will design them in 3D program

    KEEP THE IDEAS COMING

    Like the idea. It should be interesting to see what you come up with.

    lol I don't think talmeeno meant anything bad with his statement, but I'm curious. The Adam doesn't have anything on its lower side for docking into, such as power or usb, so basically it would probably involve cables to wrap around from the side (where the charging port and and usb ports are) to the dock itself. Unless you are doing the docking port to the USB on the side or making it just a stand.

    Either way, I am curious as to what you come up with. I think its a interesting idea. The image above intrigues me.

    Haha yes I'm sorry I didn't mean anything bad. I actually understand your Idea. This would still be a good idea to have some sort of permanent setup waiting for you. Everything is already connected to the dock (HDMI out to the TV, power connection to the dock, and external speakers) so you can just slip your Adam in and not have to do any setting up (now you can play music through external speakers, watch movies through TV, leave Adam to charge).

    It is slightly easier than having the cables just lying next to your stand I suppose.

    That is exactly what i was thinking....
    I dislike having cable just hanging around and this would help manage them.

    @talmeeno Sorry i took the comment that way. all is good.
