Venus of Cupertino iPad docking station by designer Scott Eaton
I immediately interpreted this as absolutely stunning and beautiful, then became concerned about what the artist’s intent might be.
Designed by London-based artist Scott Eaton, the sketches for the prototype began since March of last year. We’re still trying to figure out the statement this iPad dock is trying to make. Is it a symbol of American consumerism? Are we that infatuated with modern gadgets? When the heck did Venus let herself go that badly? These days, she seems a bit more interested with technology than putting on a robe and embodying love, sex, and beauty.
The dock is compatible with all three versions of the iPad and can charge and sync the device through her belly button. Awkward? Yes. Unique and adorable in its own way? Eh, kind of. Eaton even calls his creation “stylish and sexy” so if you’re into this kind of thing, all the more power to ya.I’d say “stylish and sexy” pretty much sums it up.
Love the design and, if the price is right, know what I’m getting my Honey for Christmas.
Too bad the Reviewer seems to be a classically fatphobic asshat. If the piece looked more like Scarlett Johansson would we be worried about what ‘statement’ was being made? Is it so hard to believe that people can’t find the piece, as it is, stylish & sexy? Nevermind. Oh, and fuck off while your at that, Kthnxbye.
I actually looked into it, and sadly, it’s $199, which is really too rich for my blood for an iPad dock. (Also, I can’t tell from the design if it would fit the iPad 1 or not, which is decidedly chunkier than the later models.)
