I had an idea for a kind of stand for the V, something that would let it charge, add additional ports and potentially provide more power or storage space.
So, it would have four main elements that would enhance user experience.
- Additional Connectivity: 3 USB 3.0 Type A ports, One LAN Port and a Power Jack (Not End User Serviceable)
- Additional Storage: Doing something like adding a 3.5" drive bay as well as a 2.5" bay would be really appealing for those of us with large media libraries (End User Serviceable and Not run over the Thunderbolt Connection)
3: Additional GPU Power: Throwing an eGPU-style box plus the additional storage would be awesome (End User Serviceable)
4: Looks: The way I imagine this thing is not just plugging the V into it over thuderbolt, you actually dock it, like an old school iPhone dock. This is made for both function and from. Ideally, you would be able to put the V into it and have it look totally natural. Kind of like this, but thicker
PS: I know the “dock” mechanism kind of kills being able to use the on-board screen, but in the box there would be a “TB3 Extension Cable” that could wire into the dock.
I would love to have your perspective on this! Leave me some feedback in the thread!
