The 4th generation Echo Dot has started shipping. That means that it is now possible to provide accessories for the leading smart speaker. And Angled is getting it started with a few basic accessories and some resources to other designers that would like to create accessories for the Echo Dot 4th Gen.
The first thing we decided to go ahead and fix was the stability. The 4th Gen Echo dot is, after all, a ball. It is not that stable. So we made a very simple stand that it can placed in that just keeps it from rolling off of your nightstand if you are using it as an alarm clock.
We then went ahead and created a few more basic stands from that platform. Each adding a different style to the Dot. All different shapes and colors. If you have an idea for an echo dot stand please submit it to us. We would be happy to add it to the site. And the designer receives 25% of all sales.
Swirl Echo Dot Stand (4th Gen)
Give your echo Dot a bit more style and keep it from rolling away.
The new echo dot is not one of the cheapest smart speakers anymore. Unlike the original puck design the new sphere costs 49-60 dollars. If you would like to create accessories for the echo dot. But don't want to pay for an actual new speaker. We have created and dummy model of the 4th gen echo dot. It is dimensionally accurate and can be used for the sizing, testing and photography
