Connecting to the iPad via its Lightning cable, the Structure then works in unison with its own infrared sensor and black-and-white camera (for depth perception) along with the tablet's onboard imaging system. Commanded by mobile apps living on the iPad, this setup then has the power to "sense" a wide range of objects in real time. … Read more

The docks appear to be identical in design, each with a Lightning-in and audio-out connections on the back, with an up-facing Lightning-in connector on front.
Each dock behaves as docks are wont to do, allowing you to charge, sync, play music, as well as conduct speaker phone calls while your iPhone rests in its cradle.
