Default Nexus One DIY Docks

There's a lot of discussion about docks for the Nexus One. Since budget is a big issue for a lot of us, why don't we resort to DIY solutions?

Please share your ideas in making a Nexus One DIY dock.

EDIT:
Neat DIY solutions we have here so far

Before breaking out the duct tape you might want to have a look at the 3rd party cradles on ebay.

Another option is the one dollar docking station

Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about! Cool

Good thing the Clock app works on landscape

I think, the cradle mentioned here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=627552 would also work nicely. Good thing we have those in the Philippines. I just hope it's safe for the Nexus One.

Thanks for the ebay tip. Found a lot of options

DONATE TO ME
I've been waiting for alternate docks too.
I don't need the bluetooth or RCA connectors, just a stand with pins to charge the n1. (via the pins, not micro usb)

can someone with a dock post some pictures of the dock pins, if they can volt-test the pins that would be great.

Not fancy enough to use pins or anything, but it does what I need. Legos FTW!

The ebay knockoffs use microUSB, just like the lego dock As far as I know there are no pin-utilizing ones apart from the official one. Too bad I already have bluetooth speakers :)

Absolutely agree. Sadly, I bet we won't ever see one. I'm guessing it's much cheaper just to mold a piece of plastic around a micro-usb plug than to actually match the pin setup. I'm guessing that's why we saw them appear so quickly after launch.

Hope I'm proven wrong, though. That Nexus dock is hella expensive, and apparently kind of buggy.
