    Seeing the thread on the dock hack made me want to make my own decent looking lego dock. Didn't want to spend $30 on the motorola one once I found out I could easily make it myself. So here are some pictures. It works great and looks great too, at least I think so. Let me know what you all think of it.

    I used a small magnet I had from a magnetic dart set I had. Used the good ol' dremel to make a hole in the lego piece to hold this magnet. Used super glue to hold the usb micro in place. Then I added the "droid eye" on top. I know it's orange, but I didn't have a red piece.
