Joby Gorillamobile tripod announced

Joby announced their Gorillamobile tripod today, which acts a shift of emphases on cameras with their GorillaPod to mobile devices like the iPhone or Flip camera.

What's cool about this tripod is that it can be used on just about any surface because of its ball joint legs. They can even bend so as to attach your device to a bike, a light pole or what have you.

Included with the Gorillamobile tripod is a suction-cup mount and adhesive clips. You can get the tripod by the end of the summer for $29.95.

Joby’s New Zivio Bluetooth Headset

Joby’s New Zivio Bluetooth Headset

Aimed at being a company of innovation, Joby has brought us the unique Gorillapod and is now announcing a line of Bluetooth headsets scheduled for release in Q2 of 2007. This ultra lightweight and stylish headset features a unique adjustable earpiece that attaches via magnet and also a retractable microphone.

The unit has 10 hours of talk time or 12.5 days standby time and can be recharged via USB. Unfortunately all the pictures we took of the prototype at CES turned out blurry--if only we had a Gorillapod at the time. So we've borrowed the lovely image above from Gizmodo.

Your dog is watching you – Kodak asks “how do I look?”

Your dog is watching you – Kodak asks “how do I look?”

Bring in your cats, shield the childrens' eyes and lock your doors; the Cyborg Dogs are here!  Or maybe it's a rather unimpressed pug with a camera strapped to its head, using one of the twisty-fingered Gorillapod mounts.  This act of minor dog augmentation was the work of a Kodak employee interested, nay, desperate to see things from her pet's point-of-view.  Given the evolution is a cruel mistress and is yet to bless canines with the requisite thumbs for normal camera holding duties, the flexible tripod was used to grip around Oscar (for that be his name) and his collar; timer set, he was free to snap away while wandering round the house.

Blurry photos aside, we can conclude that Oscar is interested in his owner, in cats and in looking around the house.  Check out some of his work after the cut, or the full gallery here.
