Since I spend so much time coloring my Zombie Wagon cartoons all retro style, I decided to make a functional charging station for my iPhone 4S using a new 64 box of certified Crayola Crayons.
I modified the top left crayon sleeve with a piece of sturdy cardboard at the base to lock in the dock. I used a few layers of electrical tape to hold the connector in place then cut a fresh hole in the rear for my cable to exit rather than destroying the essential on-board crayon sharpener.
After I snapped a close-up photo of the crayons, I used the image as a replica on my iPhone. I'm able to view incoming banner text messages with my phone left in place. Just give the crayon box a firm squeeze and lift the handset to remove and close the lid. This simple do-it-yourself charging station can be completed in about an hour.
I'm convinced that Crayola is going to nick my elementary school cool idea and rush this Crayon Box Dock into mass production. Somebody has to!
