Joby’s Gorillapod products have always been a lot of fun and at PMA 2008 in Vegas they debuted a new accessory for these popular bendable tripods — the Go-Go! (their punctuation, not ours) suction cup.
The Go-Go! lets you attach most any small, hand-held device — iPhone, MP3 player, small digital camera — to the tripod for easy viewing. Yes, we know this sounds a little weird but with more and more content coming to mobile devices you’re going to want to be able to view it without having to hold it in your hand for long periods of time.
The best application we could think of is for watching a movie or video clip on your iPod on a long flight by setting the Gorillapod Go-Go! on your tray table in front of you. You’re still going to have squint to see the small screen but at least the Go-Go! will give your arm a rest. (The only hitch is if the jerk in front of you reclines his seat all the way into your lap.)
You can buy the Gorillapod Go-Go! as a package for $34.95 or purchase a pack of three Go-Go! suction cups for $11.95. For more info check out Joby’s website: www.Joby.com.
