Picture of iPod Sync Pad
So basically i wanted to make a soft pad to place my iPod Touch on when it synced, i didn't want it rolling about on my desk and collecting dust/scratches.

It took me about an hour to think up and make and it doesn't use many materials or tools so overall its pretty easy to do.

Does anybody actually read this ? blah blah blah whatever just look at the pictures then, you'd better leave a comment though...

 oh and rated 5 stars! I'll post pictures when I'm done :)

Great idea! I would never have thought of using rubber bands for the grippy feet. It just so happens that I'm reading this on my touch right now :)
Haha me too

From this instructable I learnt we should have got you a cutting mat and a steel ruler for your birthday! Now your plastic ruler will be as straight as a roundabout and your desk will have scratches as deep as the grand canyon!

Thanks for the idea! i made one of these, but i shaved out a hole in the middle, so it kind of rests inside. Its for a second gen btw. Ill try and get some pictures up.

Yea that would be cool, a large'ish pad and you could have holes for the chargers to poke through
