Friday has come and it is absolutely fabulous weather here in San Francisco which make us all anxious for a weekend full of running, skiing and who knows what else. This week I stumbled across some intriguing stop motion videos all created with the help of a GorillaPod. The first is just cool from a construction point of you as it allows you to watch the multi-day construction process required to put together the Technicolor booth for CES. The second is a beautiful ode to the City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia Spain. In this well scored piece, the imagery is just gorgeous. My favorite parts are watching the random cleaning of the pool reminding me of some aqua-aerobics classes which I may have enjoyed.
Last week at CES, we launched two incredibly different iPad products. Apparently, we weren’t the only ones excited by our creations. The GorillaMobile Ori won best in show for Beatweek Magazine. Notcot didn’t only love our product they also marvelled at our booth and the origami that we used in both our stop motion videos and to draw attention to our new products. This great in depth piece covers our partnership with Origami master Robert Lang who not only created a sculptural element for the booth, but also crafted amazing origami for our stop motion video to help launch GorillaMobile Ori for iPad.
And now for just a few of the highlights:

Today, at CES Unveiled, JOBY is launching two new iPad products with distinct users in mind. After researching and observing how people interact with their iPads we realized that there are two very different types of iPad users. We wanted to provide each of these users with the ultimate positioning experience so they can enjoy reading, cooking, or watching movies for hours without sacrificing their neck.
GorillaMobile Ori for iPad is designed for the professional who seeks to get maximum the productivity on-the-go of their iPad. Inspired by the art of Origami, the Ori easily folds into ergonomic positions, allowing you to comfortably push the limits of the iPad.
Check out our fun stop-motion, Origami video entitled “Morning Folds to Night” to find out more about how the Ori works throughout the day:

For users, who prefer to cuddle up with their iPad and use it in uneven and comfy situations like lying on the couch or the bed, the GorillaMobile Yogi for iPad allows for total flexibility in all environments. With chunky, playful legs that wrap around nearly anything, the Yogi makes itself at home easily in nearly an infinite number of poses to maximize your iPad experience.
So, really it just boils down to, what kind of iPad user are you?
