Another Knex IPod Dock




Introduction: Another Knex IPod Dock

About: My name's Ryan Roberts and I'm from rural southern Minnesota on a farm. I like to tinker around with electrical stuff and motorized equipment. I also enjoy building stuff.

This is a quick and simple dock for your iPod video. It'll probably work with other iPods but I designed this one specifically for my video...

Step 1: Getting the Parts

You will need the following pieces (make sure to look at each photo):

Step 2: Construction!

Just put everthing together as shown.

Step 3: And Your Done!

Simple right?

    This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

    This is my favorite out of all of the K'nex iPod docks that I've seen here so far. It's simple, works well, looks nice.... Just a quick note though, on newer iPods (at least the ipod classic) the connectors on the usb cord (the iPod end) are shorter than previous versions so they won't lock in place as nicely with this design like earlier ones do.

    Well thank you, but yes, i recently got an ipod touch and found that to be a problem. also, due to the smaller connection on the ipod, I found that it will not actually make an electrical connection with the usb cord when the dock adapter is placed in between. Rather unfortunate, i'd say.
