Check out this fantastic iPad dock from Valliswood. Designed to look like an old TV complete with dials and rabbit ears (remember dials?! you actually had to get up to change the channel) but with a slot to hold your iPad. A hole in the fold-down rear panel lets you run the charging cord through it. Handmade by a craftsman named Mario in Croatia from local trees- old stumps, broken or parted logs- none are from living trees. Beautiful.
