    I'm sure everyone saw the front page article about the charging stand available on the Shapeways website. Mine just showed up. It's pretty nice. The texture is rough, but not in a bad way at all. It's weighted perfectly so the stand doesn't tip forward when the Band is mounted. Some pictures:

    Looks nice, but since you're supposed to wear it all the time, I don't personally see the value in something like that.

    Ohh, nice. I was thinking of getting one of those. Right now when I'm not charging my band I just have the cord stuck to the metal neck of the lamp by my bed. This looked like a great idea for keeping the charger ready to access. I'm assuming it's balanced well and/or heavy enough so that it doesn't tip over when you pull the band off?

    Not for me, given mine's only plugged in for roughly half an hour in the morning, but neat idea.

    Got mine a few days ago. I really like it. Of course, I only use it when I am charging my Band while I'm in the shower, I still like to have the Band on the stand. Plus it was created on a 3D printer...need I say more? ;-)

    A little off topic
    Is it just me, or is your band in silver and some kind of green?? (color)

    It's probably just my inability to take decent pictures. :) Plus, I used the flash when taking the pictures.

    Ha ha Thanks.
    Well, it was $11.00 a couple of weeks ago, but they've raised the price to $15.00 now due to demand I'm guessing. Here's a link:

    Anyone know if the designer has released 3D file to print it ourselves?

    Alternatively, he or another designer could sell the design on 3docean.net

    well I remembered this from back when I first got my Band and I thought that I would check it out and maybe get one but the url is bad and I'm thinking that its no longer being made at least by Shapeways.

    Update. I did some more looking and found Idle Hands Development and its still available at Shapeways not through the url above.
