Instead of those swivel tabs, he could have just made the back shield part longer so it overlaps part of the laptop. You could even just make it overlap on the edges, so you could still use the notch he made for removal.

Do rocks like that even exist anymore? As thunderbolt and high speed USB become more ubiquitous, docks are starting to run through those. You can plug in a single cable from a dock and suddenly your laptop is a desktop. That’s literally what I’m doing. One USB cable, and it automatically connects to a high res monitor, mouse and keyboard, Ethernet, and speakers. I do still have to plug it in for power because it doesn’t support USB C charging, but it’s so convenient

This could work under some circumstances: 1. All of the ports are on a single side 2. You're not going to block the air vent (this is important if you're working with a high performance laptop)

Can you do a version of this with laptops that have power plug on one side and hdmi. On the other? I was thinking sliding it onto the hdmi side and then use a small lever action to push the plug in the other side once it's in place.

Or just get one of those thunderbolt adaptors/docks that just plug in it one port and allow things from sd cards to usbs to hdmi... you can have it under the table and get the cable from the back of the desk... and obviously you'll have to have the charging cable separate... but better have 2 cables and still be able to have the laptop as a secondary display...

Hi Matt, any new project(s)? May I suggest one? what about a Thunderbolt3 hub that can handle a daughter-board for eSATA x1 controller to plug in 4 sata drives (per 1 board)? Can it be done? It can be plugged in to a laptop with a Thunderbolt3 port and perhaps due to power requirements, will need to be a powered hub. what do you think?

Looks cool but very impractical when laptops change port layouts so often. I'd rather just buy a Thunderbolt 3 dock, plug in one cable that does all of that and be done with it.

Keeping the laptop closed all the time and blocking all of its vents with the dock is ... an absolutely terrible terrible terrible idea. Build in some channels for airflow and toss in some sort of fan, and this would be great, but otherwise, it's completely nonsensical and it raises the question of why he put so much effort into doing it so poorly. I love the channel, and I gave this video a thumbs up anyway because I don't like being a hater. But yeah, this one was very bad.
