This Switch “Dock” Is 10X Times Smaller Than The Original

If you’re the type of person who takes there switch on the go and thought the dock for the switch is just too is, then the may be the product for you.
A new Kickstarter project from accessory maker Human Things, creators of a Switch Bluetooth audio dongle, describes it as a "covert dock", the Genki is a charger with a dock hidden inside. The idea is to make the dock and charger small enough that you can take them with you when you travel with your Switch.
The charger include foldable prongs and USB-C charging, with dock outputs for HDMI and a USB 3.1 accessory port. You plug your switch into it and plug it into a TV or display via HDMI, so technically it’s not really a dock. 
The device is compact, being advertised as 10X smaller than the original Switch dock, and should fit in a pocket.  Human Things also says it will work with other gadgets as well as the Switch. It can take display data from USB-C and process it for HDMI output, so it can be used for both displaying images on second screens and fast-charging phones and laptops, even MacBooks wth USB-C.
It should be noted that Kickstarter projects aren't guaranteed to work, so proceed with caution. But if you want to get your hands on the “dock” you can pledge support for the early bird price of $49.
