The Apple iPad is by far the hottest gadget of 2011 so it's only natural that manufacturers have produced eco-friendly docking stations to match. The iLog is as close to the earth as they come. A simple organic handmade oak stand by Twisted Tee secures your iPad in its rustic body while also acting as a charger. Each log is made from reclaimed London oak. A French group took a more minimalistic approach and created an iPhone docking station out of 220 to 270 gram paper. The designers even released their design on the web. Check out the video below to build your own eco-friendly iPhone docking station.
Voltaic's Spark Tablet Case on the other hand is a lot more high-tech, using solar power to generate operational time on the iPad. Designed as a travel case as well as support, it retails for $300. The case is lightweight, waterproof, UV-resistant and is made from recycled plastic bottles. It holds roughly 8-9 hours of direct sunlight energy in its universal battery pack. Interested?
