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.
