It’s time! GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi for iPad 2 Have Arrived

By | New Product Launch | 2 Comments

For months, you have begged, pleaded and  written hilariously-rich statements about your needs for iPad 2 versions of the GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi. Today, your deep yearnings for the hands-free positioning and camera optimizing  benefits of the case + stands: GorillaMobile Ori and GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2 can be fulfilled. Each case targets a different type of iPad user- the Ori is for the power iPad user, while the Yogi is suited for those who use their iPad in a more relaxed and cozy manner. Of course, the toughest part may be deciding what type of user you are!

 

GorillaMobile Ori for iPad 2

Built for the demanding iPad power user, the GorillaMobile Ori for iPad 2 provides sleek ergonomic positioning all in a protective case and stand. Drawing its inspiration from the folding art of origami, the GorillaMobile Ori is engineered from a superlight German-made aluminum/polypropylene composite used in high-performance cars. This next-generation material allows Ori to be folded into countless positions designed with the needs of the mobile professional in mind.  And when folded back into its folio mode, the Ori delivers lightweight, rigid stability that can easily slip it into your bag for travel to the next meeting. The iPad 2 version of the Ori follows on the amazing success and accolades of the Ori for iPad 1 which won best of show by Beatweek Magazine at CES and was awarded finalist at the IDEA awards by ISDA.

Watch the Ori in action:

 
GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2

For those iPad users who would rather read and watch videos in the comfort of their bed or on the couch, the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad 2, stretches and wraps into the perfect position. The limber yet sturdy legs of the GorillaMobile Yogi twist and bend to stabilize the iPad on uneven surfaces – from your lap to the kitchen cabinet! The polycarbonate case with rubber bumper protects your iPad from shocks and falls. Plus, the quick-release clip easily detaches the modular legs, allowing the case and legs to be used in landscape or portrait mode.

PS Lest you think I am exaggerating the hilarious statements that were sent to me while waiting for release of the iPad 2 versions  – this is my favorite one: “My iPad has been grounded for the past 2 months. He wants to go out and play with his friends and he’s mad I won’t let him without a helmet.”

Friday Finds: Photography that makes you think and the GorillaPod – the Outdoorsman’s Best Friend

Happy Friday Creactives!

Today, I stumbled across this intriguing image with  a scary JOBY GorillaPod plus camera peering ominously over fright-filled cigarettes. The story behind the image is even more arresting as it is by a  Spanish photographer, J. Tiogran Solana who recently quit smoking and used the money he saved from not smoking to buy himself a camera. The cigarettes are there to help celebrate his one year anniversary with the his camera.

Two fun videos appeared this week embracing outdoor adventures. The first is a video of a clear love affair with  a Cannondale bike captured with a GorillaPod SLR Zoom.

The second, makes me want to hit the slopes as the film captures the child-like grin you get while skiing…and the inevitable fall that comes when you are filming yourself doing it.

Continuing to attract attention for it’s unique look and ergonomically-empowered  positions, the GorillaMobile Ori for iPad had a few strong write ups this week in iPhone Life Magazine and MacStories.

Great opening paragraph in the MacStories article:

For those still holding onto the original iPad, have you ever thought about stepping your game up when it comes watching a family movie or utilizing the iPad as a bookstand? That folio case you have isn’t going to elevate the iPad above those popcorn jaws, and you certainly aren’t going to get a stable viewing angle on a leather cover as you tap through a recipe book. Even with a slew of gadgets and arms, the iPad is only as flat as its case. JOBY will help your iPad avoid disaster with a product that’s quite transformative.

JOBY set to innovate GorillaMobile along with Apple’s iPad 2

By | New Product Launch | No Comments

Today, as many of you most likely know, Apple announced their newest version of the iPad. Armed with a front- and back-facing camera, faster speeds and multi-tasking features all in a thinner package, the iPad 2 is poised to be the must-have device for reading, cooking, gaming and picture-taking. So, what’s JOBY planning to do about it?

We are thrilled! JOBY purposely created the GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi for iPad to serve as platforms for the iPad as Apple continues to improve on its masterpiece. Plus, with the added camera, the positioning and stabilization that Ori and Yogi offer become even more important for capturing images or communicating with loved ones.

Following on the enormous success launch of the GorillaMobile Ori and Yogi at CES, we are ready to kick it up a notch to enhance the improvements on the iPad 2. The versatility of the Yogi will enable the same sort of electronic acrobatics you have come to expect from a JOBY product. With flexible and bendable legs that attach to any height, the GorillaMobile Yogi will make picture taking from extreme angles a breeze, plus with amazing ability to adapt to uneven surfaces, the Yogi will take the improved memory of the iPad 2 to the next level allowing for lazy Sundays filled with music, video watching, magazine devouring and food creating hours.

For the Mobile Pro, the sleek, ergonomic protection of the Ori will protect the iPad on-the-go and fold into exactly the right angle for any activity you may want from your iPad including maximizing your next conference call with the front-facing camera and Skype. The Ori is constructed from a super strong, German-made, aluminum and polypropylene composite which provides the case with lightweight yet rigid stability so that it can achieve 15 inches of extended ergonomic positioning in viewing modes. Precise positioning and stabilization, something JOBY knows a thing or two about, are even more compelling features when using cameras for photo-taking, video recording and video calling.

Keep your eyes peeled- the next generation of GorillaMobile Ori and GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad will be available for purchase at select retail locations in June of this year.

Friday Finds: Nice People, Carrots and iPad Case + Stand Reviews

Hello Creactives,

This week has been very meeting filled, so I am actually looking forward to the bizarrely cold weather that appears to be coming our way.  I don’t believe it, but the weather gods of the iPhone claim that it will somehow be snowing with a  low of 36 degrees today. Looking out the window it is sunny – there does seem to be a disconnect here.

I love the title of this book, ” Do Carrots Make Nice People?” I am glad they clarified the species, because otherwise it would imply that rabbits are the nicest of all. To date, I just haven’t found that to be the case.

In the meantime, this week we received great press for our newest additions to the product line – the GorillaMobile Ori and the GorillaMobile Yogi.  CNET did a great hands on review of the GorillaMobile Ori and the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad – Kama Sutra references and all.

In a much more family-friendly take on the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad, the Dallas Morning News, highlighted the multiple positions of the Yogi.
