Joby (http://www.JOBY.com) has launched two new iPad products For the road warrior, the GorillaMobile Ori is designed to amplifiy the productivity of the iPad with ergonomic design and sleek protection on-the-go. The GorillaMobile Yogi is designed for the user who sees the iPad as an extension of themselves and wants to cuddle up with the iPad on the couch or in bed.
The $79.95 GorillaMobile Ori transforms from a sleek protective case to a versatile, ergonomic positioning stand. Drawing its inspiration from the folding art of origami, it’s engineered from a superlight German-made aluminum/polypropylene composite used in high-performance cars, says Joby CEO Forrest Baringer-Jones. The four main viewing modes are optimized for the task at hand, so you can position the stand to watch a movie on the plane, flip through a business presentation or type an email at a café — with the ability to adjust the display height and viewing angle to be comfortable for you. The Ori delivers rigid stability in a sculptural, lightweight form and provides streamlined protection, so you can easily slip it into your bag when in folio mode, according to Baringer-Jones.
Inspired by the desire to read and view videos without putting a kink in your neck , the flexible $49.95 GorillaMobile Yogi wraps around and clings to any surface with its oversized ball and socket legs. The legs of the GorillaMobile Yogi twist and bend to stabilize the iPad on uneven surfaces or wrap around fixtures in the kitchen.
It offers an adjustable viewing angle in portrait or landscape orientation. The polycarbonate case with rubber bumper protects your iPad from shocks and falls. Plus, the quick-release clip detaches the modular legs, allowing the case and legs to be quickly stowed in your bag together or separately.
