The iPhone. Part sophisticated gadget, part work of industrial design art. Yet we charge it by plugging in a cable and letting it sit on a desk. Calypso Crystal thinks we can do better. Their CrystalDocks are cast from lead crystal glass and hand-finished to visual and tactile perfection. They allow full charge/sync via your iPhone/iPod touch cable. Beau, Celestia and Dune models are $199 each, with the Aurora available for $349 for a limited time. Expensive? Oh, yeah. I must confess that when I first stumbled upon these, I thought they were ridiculously priced for a simple iPhone dock, but reading through their production process intrigued me and now, even though they’re not really my style, I sort of can’t take my eyes off them. Come on, admit it—you want one.
