Covena Design definitely get our points for clever ideas implemented in their tablet dock called Foaster. The project is currently seeking funding at Kickstarter, and the mobile device accessory is so attractive that there’s no reason to believe it won’t get funded. It’s a charging dock, which can simultaneously refill up to 4 smartphones or tablets. And yes, the case looks just like a toaster, where the main slots accommodate two smartphones, but there are two extra ones, which can fit 2 additional phones or tablets. There’s a built-in power supply, which ensures charging of 4 devices simultaneously, up to 2.4A each. The case also utilizes microsuction technology to provide one-handed docking and removal.
