Awesome Apple Watch stand transforms your timepiece into an 80's Macintosh computer


If there’s one thing nobody can deny Apple’s good at, it’s creating lasting designs. A testament to that is the angular Macintosh 128K from 1984 – a computer with such an iconic look, 30 years later people are using it as a design piece. The cuboid Mac has been repurposed to such things as a flower pot, an aquarium, an iPad stand, a DJ-ing helmet (yes, really), and many, many more. While some techies may find these “reincarnations” of the classic machine blasphemous, they are a testament to its lasting design.

If you are among the many who like the look of this Macintosh computer, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that accessory maker Elago has released a 128K-styled stand for the Apple Watch. It comes in black and classic white/beige and looks really cool when you slip your watch in, especially if you’re using a watch face with green accents.

The W3 Elago Apple Watch stand is made from silicone and supports both generations of Apple Watches. It also supports Nightstand Mode and has a slot to fit the official charging cable. Both colors of the W3 start at $13.49 and can be purchased at Elago’s online store.

That's kinda cool. Sad though that the watch almost spends as much time on the charging stand (typically overnight for our case) as it does on the wrist.

That's very clever, Though couldn't you just 3d print something like this?
