Apple products are a staple of the plugged in. Tech enthusiasts, digital nomads, and online entrepreneurs are never more than a few steps away from an iPhone, an iMac, or a MacBook. However, with iterations of everyone's favorite Apple devices losing ports and outlets on what feels like a weekly basis, the cost of adapters is too much for some to bear. Fortunately, one company came up with an affordable solution.
DoBox is a portable, wireless dock that connects to your iPhone, your iMac, and your iPad without all the extra doohickies. With multiple ports to connect an internet cable, flash drives, hard drives, keyboards, printers, TVs, projectors, monitors or speakers, you'll never have to look at a dongle ever again. Plus, you'll be able to use them wirelessly thanks to DoBox's own WiFi setup.
As is evident from their Indiegogo campaign video, there are far too many features to list in a mere online article. Whether you want to charge your phone on the go, connect to a projector, or turn your home entertainment system into a smart home hub, you'll be able to do it easily and affordably thanks to this nifty little device.
This is clearly a great idea, as is evident from the $163,000 raised from the campaign. And while it may seem like such a good idea that crowdfunding wouldn't be necessary, a little bit of an extra bump never hurt anyone.
If you want to use an SD card on an iPhone or plug two USB cables into your Macbook Air, you're going to have to shell out the big bucks or you're out of luck. But with DoBox, you'll spend $200 for every connection you can imagine. Seems like a pretty good deal from our end.
With Apple pulling the headphone jack, there's no telling what might be next. Products like DoBox ease the stress of the ever-changing Apple devices landscape, allowing fans and users to actually wait a few weeks before jumping on the new iPhone, Macbook, or iPad of the day. And if it shortens lines at the Apple Store, I'm on board.
