Knex Ipod Dock (fits Any Size)




About: Now this looks like a job for me, so everybody, just follow me. Cause we need a little controversy , cause it feels so empty without me.

Hello! This is my first reasonable Instructable ! So congrats for me!

Now on to the Instructable ! So this a K'nex Ipod dock. It is my entry for Jayefuu's knex contest .It fits any kind ipod or iphone .It is VERY sturdy .I dropped it down the stairs and nothing happened :O. It has a pulley to store your extra wire from your USB cord. I imagine this could be used for other MP3's and phones, as long as it is not wider than the dock. So on to the instructions !
