This Adorable Dinosaur is Actually a Charger for HTC's Re Camera

By Tom Pritchard on at

When you think about gadgets you tend not to consider how cute they are, or how nice they'd look sitting on your desk. Then you see the HTC Re Dino Charger and that all changes.

All you have to do to complete the effect is to stick the periscope-shaped camera into the dock and you find yourself with an ever-so-adorable mini Brachiosaurus. The charging cable even plugs into the tail, because where else would make sense?

It's not just for show, though. Sure the Dino Charger would look really cool on a desk or a shelf, but by acting as a stand it opens up a whole new world of functionality. For one thing it's never going to run out of power, which makes it ideal for creating time-lapses or use as a security camera. It also can also rotate a full 360 degrees, making it a fantastic piece of kit for panorama shots

We don't have any word on pricing or availability just yet, but I don't even own a Re Camera and I kind of want one. [Unleash the Phones]
