Joby has released a new 'Gorilla' mount for mobile phones.
One of the oddest yet, perversely, possibly one of the most useful props for your mobile phone (and your MP3 device, GPS box and any other mobile device) is about to be released via Joby. The Gorillapod basically consists of a mount to connect to your device and three bendy legs which can be placed into any position to act as a standard tripod for a desk or it can be wrapped around a pole as a 'steady cam' support or wrapped around the handle bars of your bike for monitoring or fixed to an exercise bike or...well, two dozen leg joints bend and rotate a full 360 degrees, so the choice is yours.
The Gorillapod comes with a choice of three quick release adaptors and is sized at 15 x 3 x 3cm.
The device, which is available now for a pre-order with a launch date on August 10th, and is available to UK customers for £40 - although there may be some P&P to add to that figure.
