Friday Finds: Shuttle Launch, Summer Gift Guide, Vacation Shots

Happy Friday Creactives!

Let’s start off with a video of the recent shuttle launch filmed by Eric Jue, brother of our project manager Michael, using a GorillaMobile for iPhone 4. If you’re impatient, skip to the 23 second mark for 3, 2, 1, blast off!

And a few words from the videographer about how he captured this historic moment: “GorillaMobile was THE perfect solution for this situation. I wanted to capture video and audio of this historic space shuttle launch using my iPhone 4 and needed to get it above the crowd for a clearer view. I scouted the area and ended up attaching the GorillaMobile to a tall vertical pole holding up one of the speakers broadcasting the mission control audio feed. I was able to wrap the legs around the speaker bracket and position the iPhone camera to include the 1st couple rows of spectators in the foreground while maximizing the visible sky for the perfect shot of the launch!”

The GorillaTorch Original continues to be our media darling. This week it was featured in the Core 77 Ultimate Summer Gift Guide. They featured some really fun and unique products in their guide and we are happy to be among such great company. I mean, how awesome is this re-imagined tool box?

And these BBQs by  Black+Blum have been showing up all over the place. I always thought the Weber Smokey Joe was cute, but their Hot Pot takes the cake.

I might be biased, but the JOBY GorillaTorch fits right in with this crowd – unique design and awesome utility!

I’ll send you off with a few beautiful images taken with the help of a GorillaPod. Anybody else have vacation on the brain? Where does your dream getaway take you? I’m torn between Paris and Peru.
