    So my brother saw my Lego iPad Stand and instantly wanted one of his own for his iPod Touch. I told him that the only time he ever docks his iPod is when he gives it to me to update it, but he still said make him something. One game he really likes is Crash Bandicoot racing, so I decided to make him a holder/steering wheel to see if it helps him out. Here's what I came up with after only working on it for about 30 or so mins.

    I have also made a Lego iPhone Dock that matches the iPad Stand and this which can be seen here (Lego iPhone Dock)

    Oh look! A tutorial on how to make it

    Now it fits his iPod very firmly with his case on but if he were to take it off it would slide around/not fit. But of course with it on it fits snugly. Tell me what you think. Anything I could improve on it?

    Here's a video of him playing on it. He said he really likes it and it has helped him with his "driving". Oh and he's only 6 btw

    Oh and I'm also working on an iPhone dock that will match this and my Lego iPad dock that I linked to above.

    Believe it or not, I have the same grey silicon case. And your iPad Dock link is banned from the site! I would love to see it!

    Then if I put up a guide it would fit your iPod Touch perfectly

    Is it that hard to make a dock? I don't see how you would need a tut. Looking at the picture is pretty straight forward. I think I will make a portrait dock for mine tonight.

    Well, now I am actually focusing on the iPad holder. Could I make my own rendition and post photos?

    This isn't meant to be a dock though, just a little add-on for him. But yeah, they are pretty easy to make. To be honest the hardest part is just making them not lean/fall forward when making a dock.

    Yeah that'd be great. I'd love to see what you could come up with.

    EDIT: Added in the video.
