Happy Friday Creactives!

 

Somehow we have tripped into the middle of April and all that entails. This week brought with it some interesting videos from JOBY fans which includes some fun lip syncing which for a change does involve ABBA and  a great set of images in a blog titled “Hiking in Finland” about – you guessed it – hiking in Finland with a GorillaPod SLR.

First a test of a GorillaPod Focus mounted on the outside of a moving vehicle by JOBY fan  Zach Settewongse of www.s3films.com. Disclaimer – we do not suggest nor encourage you to try this out- but it is entertaining to watch.

Happy Friday!!

Here at JOBY, we clearly are in awe of parkour (in case you haven’t figured that out see exhibit #1 = our website) and these outtakes from the Red Bull Art of the Motion shot using a GorillaPod do not diminish our interest one bit. Some mind blowing stuff!

Other Good Stuff

Look quickly and keep your eye on the woman’s hand (seriously)…you’ll know what I am talking about when you view this promotional video by Go Pro. Didn’t see what I was talking about? Where is your mind?

Some Press Shout Outs

“Innovative” and “useful”- music to our ears in this great piece about the GorillaTorch line that appeared in this week’s Montreal Gazette.

With “four viewing positions with infinite permutations” and affirmation of the ergonomic benefits of the foldable accessory, Macworld has a long review of our GorillaMobile Ori for iPad.

Friday Finds: JOBY becomes a no-flexibility zone

By | Friday Find, Gorillapod | No Comments

Like many gymnasts and dancers before it, the GorillaPod woke up Friday with a clear thought in its head, “I’m just too old for this sh**.”  After years of wrapping around poles, hanging from door frames and even- heaven forbid – straddling rocks, the GorillaPod has decided that this is the end of the road. Plus, “who needs to adapt to environments anyway?” he mused. “Too much choice and flexibility must be a decidedly bad thing. It’s an epidemic, people spend too many hours trying to identify the perfect cereal in the grocery store, or trying to figure out the perfect shot. It all comes to the same thing, just take the picture, who cares if you will forever be wiped out of the family album, only to make appearances with your arm blocking half the shot? It is all about simplification.”

And with that, the new curmudgeon, turned over in his bed and went to sleep.
