In an age of DIY boredom and iPods, I decided to go off and make a new k'nex dock for my mini, but also for my mom's new Nano.
Apparently I "accidentally" broke the previous dock I made ([https://www.instructables.com/id/K'Nex-Ipod-Mini-And-Nano(1st-and-2nd-gen)-Dock/ This one]) to make a dock for my mom's Nano.
However I decided to remake a new iPod dock.
Only because the computer and instructions were downstairs, and the dock's mangled corpse was not worth recreating.
And so, a new, slick K'nex iPod dock was born.
Note: You can use this dock with basically any iPod.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Materials
I'd expect you have a decent amount of K'nex pieces lying around, I mean, I wouldn't want you running down a local toy store and asking them for a package.
That'd be weird.
You Will Need:
- K'nex Pieces (duh)
- A Rubber band
- Some kind of docky thing, a Usb connector or charger cable, I guess.
- An iPod
In all seriousness, You really wouldn't need an iPod to make this, I guess. Maybe if you want to stare at it while humming to yourself, maybe that could work.
Step 2: Construction
And so it begins.
Hopefully, the pictures should explain most of it, with the aid of captions.
Step 3: Ending Notes
Sorry I couldn't exactly give a perfect pictures and lengthy text instructable, but I'm sure that this is simple enough that you really shouldn't need that much wording, should you?
Well, now you can do whatever you want to them, whether it be spray painting the thing to make it look better (probably not advised) or adding pieces to make it nice and and decorative.
