Hello Creactives!

2010 has come to a close and what an amazing ride it has been. At JOBY, we  have moved into new offices, launched some amazing new products and have been thrilled by some of the bewilderingly creativity (all very positive) ways that you have used our products in the wild. Have a wonderful New Years Eve and please do send us some photos!

And now some fun…

Happy Friday!

What an interesting surprise for us this week when,  the cover of the International Herald Tribune came out with the newly released Burmese Democracy Activist, Aung San Suu Kyi and a yellow original GorillaPod.

This clever film, shot mostly from the biker’s viewpoint is a pleasant way to ease into the weekend. Watch and you’ll understand the title…

With Christmas less than a week away, last minute gift guides are still coming out. Some of my personal favorites are this article in Budget Travel highlighting the GorillaMobile for iPhone 4 and Wired’s Geek Dad Holiday Gift Guy with the GorillaTorch Flare. It’s not often we get paired up with Bacon Wallets and Lego Harry Party.

Hello Creactives!

Well, it is hard to best the dancing wonders of Ellen. This week, JOBY continued to be declared the ultimate Christmas gift throughout the world with appearances on AOL’s Holiday Gift Guide, Techradar in the UK, What’s Your Tech in Canada, Tu Experto Movile in Spain, and Gizmodo Germany.

The contest season continues. Be sure to enter the MacWorld Photo contest (sponsored by JOBY) so that you can win some awesome JOBY prizes. If you are not quite the photographer, the Instructables will help you engage you inner DIY spirit with the Transform It contest. Even if you aren’t feeling the Martha or Bob Villa  power, be sure to check out the entries, some are quite entertaining.

Today marks the 10th day in our “Tis the Season” campaign. To participate, be sure to check out our Facebook page and tell us your favorite guilty singing pleasure.

And now, a little midday pick-me-up…what does it mean that my favorite part is the random appearance of the ladder?

GorillaTorch Switchback on Ellen

By | Gorillatorch | One Comment

In case you missed Ellen today, GorillaTorch Switchback made an awesome appearance today on the show, care of REI. With dancing elves, Keith Urban and of course Ellen, the GorillaTorch Switchback illuminated the tent in both lantern and headlamp mode. I was hoping for a dancing Ellen with a headlamp on, but I guess that will have to wait until next year. To see GorillaTorch Switchback, fast forward to the last 2 minutes of the clip. When the dancing starts, you have arrived.
