Green Android Desk Stand

Well, in an earlier post – I showed you how to make a budget Nexus One Andrex Dock

I thought I’d get creative – so I had a look how to make play dough:

And then Proceeded:

Right now, the thing is in the oven.

Apparently you are not meant to put play doh in the oven. So it may just be a big PHAT PHAIL!

I’ll update once it’s out the oven!!

UPDATE: ITS OUT THE OVEN

Nexus One Andrex Dock

So, 26th January I ordered my Nexus One from Google.com and had to pay the $29 dollars for shipping to the UK.. quite reasonable price to be honest!

However, on 27th January Google Announced the Desktop Dock was now available – this was rather frustrating as I had already placed my order – so if I want one I will have to pay the $29 shipping fee again. However, I want 2! You can’t buy 2 though….If I want to purchase 2 then I have to place 2 seperate orders, meaning I will have to pay shipping to the UK twice, again – I’ve already paid once!

So, I figured I would make my own. This one cost 50 pence – (around 1 dollar to you US folks!)

There you have it!

This is perfect; I can create as many as I want. If you wanted to get creative you could colour yours in paint; or maybe cover it with papier mache?

$1 per dock – admitedly it doesn’t have Bluetooth like the Google one; but it’s a lot cheaper!

I almost forgot… A photo with the headphone Jack in:

Sorry about the quality of the photos… my digital camera is rubbish – it’s okay though as I now have a great camera in the Nexus One 🙂

Hope you like it.

p.s. Yes, I know it shit; but that’s what do you expect from a bit of shit roll? =))
