    Pretty useless without room for the power plug.

    I like the OPs dock. I like how the little cable looking things kind of remind me of when Robocop was in his programming chair.

    I put this together on a Saturday afternoon. I had some aluminum strips and a black plastic box for the base. A few quick cuts with a miter saw to give me the correct angles and bam, a custom dock with some personality. I also added some weight on the underside and four rubber feet to keep it stable and solid.

    Dockrunner has been discussed at length on these forums many a time. The lego docks are more about a stand for the Droid than so much for Multimedia Mode, which is all that Dockrunner can do. Software alone does not provide for a comfortable charging or upright resting position. Which is what all of these guys, myself included, have been attempting to do with our ingenuity and exploratory propensity. But thanks for the compliment! cuskit
