Henge Docks Featured in FYI Network's ‘Tiny House Nation’!

Here at Henge Docks, we are big on saving space. It’s been one of our top priorities since the company’s inception in 2009. Our inaugural product, the Vertical Docking Station for MacBook Pro, was designed and built around this principle of reducing clutter and preserving space. Each of our subsequent products have maintained this goal - which is precisely why A&E’s new lifestyle network, FYI, approached us to be featured in the debut episode of their new show ‘Tiny House Nation’.

Premiering tonight at 10 EST/11 PST, FYI network's ‘Tiny House Nation’ will “show off ingenious small spaces and the inventive people who live in them, as well as help new families design and construct their own mini-dream home in a space no larger than 500 square feet.” Hosted by renovation experts and tiny home owners John Weisbarth and Zack Giffin, the show promises to be an adventure across America to view some amazing small dwellings, from the extravagant to the budget friendly.

The Henge Docks team could not be more excited about having our products featured in ‘Tiny House Nation’! We completely agree that our Vertical Docking Stations for MacBook and the Gravitas for iPhone and iPad are the perfect fit for those looking to get the most out of their space - be it small or large! We’re certainly no strangers to how great of space savers our products are - and how they also display our Apple products beautifully in whichever environment they are placed.

Be sure to tune in tonight to FYI at 10 EST/11 PST to see ‘Tiny House Nation’ and to see Henge Docks featured on their very first episode! Follow @HengeDocks on Twitter and tell us you’re watching us on #tinyhousenation for the chance to win 25% off any Henge Docks purchase!

    Phillip – as our docks are made to fit their respective model specifically, they will not accommodate a case.

    Does anyone know if either of the docks work with the speck hard shell cases that apple sells for their MacBook pros? need to know if it will be an inconvenience to continuously remove the case. Thank you.

    Austin, we couldn’t agree more! We’re very happy to have been featured, both our product and our name, but we do certainly wish they’d given the host a bit more product knowledge! Makes you wonder about all of the things you’ve seen on other shows – what products are we being introduced to that don’t actually do what the hosts claim they do?!

    Thanks for the comment!

    Excited to see the product I just ordered featured on TV, I had nothing better to do than spend 15 minutes on FYI’s website scanning through the episode to see it featured. Im hoping I missed something but in the case I didn’t and the only point it was showed was at 35:52, I was disappointed by the network and hosts. I worked in a startup for a little while, so first off, big win to you guys and congrats on the recognition, I know how rewarding it feels to be reached out to for little things like this. I really feel that this is something the show could have iterated on a little more [technically] as a space saver and overall convenience to people living in small spaces. Saves desk space, eliminates clutter, looks sexy, yata yata. I was a little angry though when they simply called it a “media dock,” and said it “goes wirelessly to the TV.” okay, sure their technical counter claim may be that they can use a wireless hdmi kit with a display port adapter and (for keyboard/mouse/etc) bluetooth specifications give greater range than needed for the house. I would, however, like to make a $100 bet to anyone that they can’t stick a “media device, tablet, or whatever” into one of these nicely crafted docks and get it to work like the guy in the show said. They didn’t even mention how the dock is one of the few, and easily the best docking solution for macbook owners. I’m sorry, i’m just mad because some non-geeks totally dropped the ball and you guys deserved a little more. In the same amount of time, I would have said something that viewers can still understand but less stupidly, like maybe “This docking solution allows you to easily dock and charge your macbook while saving space. This allows us to hide the adapters and cable clutter, use a smaller desktop footprint, and showcase your technology home at the same time.” I just hope the dock featured on the show didn’t end up wasted in the hands of a non-poweruser or worse, someone without a MBPr. Okay Austin, breath

    That is all. Too pumped to get my dock!
