Last night on Twitter, when no one was looking, animator Tammy Gray Smith announced the soft launch of her upcoming Kickstarter campaign for the Animation Dock, a vintage animation desk for tablets.

For modern animation artists who want to celebrate the “nostalgia and class” of animation’s golden age, The Animation Dock, like a traditional animation disc, will offer 360-degree range of motion while fitting a majority of 10″ and 7″ tablets, including the iPad and Nexus 7.

A preview of the dock, as well as the rewards that can be earned by prospective backers can be viewed on the official website and Facebook page.
