The iPad Docking ‘Venus of Cupertino’

We are in love with the Venus of Cupertino.  

Artist and Designer Scott Eaton exhibited his Venus of Cupertino iPad docking stations at tent_london at the London Design Festival 2012.

The Venus of Cupertino ‘is a sculptural docking station inspired by the curvaceous forms and symbolism of ancient Venus figurines – she is a fertility goddess for the technology age.‘ And this time she’s got both arms to cradle your precious modern-day tablet.

Venus Of Cupertino – iPad Dock $199.00

Each Venus is hand-cast in museum-quality resin and is a fully functional iPad docking station. Her hands gently guide any second or third generation iPad onto a charger inconspicuously located in her midriff. A USB cable is threaded under the sculpture and fits any standard USB port or Apple power adapter for syncing or charging. The charging cable is fully changeable in order to future-proof the docking station against updates to Apple’s iPad connectors.

Scott Eaton knows his stuff – graduating in engineering and art from Princeton, working on artificial intelligence at MIT Media Lab, studying painting at Florence Academy of Art before landing in London with Escape Studios, then The Mill and Framestore working in VFX on Clash of The Titans, Harry Potter and Warhorse. Now with his own consultancy company Eaton Media, the rest, as Venus would say, is history. Check out this interview with Scott.
