YouBiq (http://www.YouBiq.com) — a developer of smartphone accessories, apps and services — is introducing OUBIQ Gymbl at this week’s Macworld Conference & Expo.
The YouBiq App and YouBiq Cloud, when combined, form a solution for capturing, managing and sharing media with the iPhone 4. YouBiq Gymbl transforms your iPhone into a “camera with a smartphone.” This accessory is an all-in-one grip, tripod and tripod adapter. At the heart of the Gymbl is a gimbal, a pivoting, panoramic head that lets the user rotate the iPhone 4 around its optical center.
The Gymbl is a d, compact and versatile accessory that can be attached in seconds to a hard-shelled, ergonomic iPhone 4 case (included). The Gymbl can serve as a handheld grip to steadily and securely hold the camera in any position, or as a tripod to enable hands-free use of the iPhone 4.
The YouBiq App connects to the YouBiq Cloud, synchronizing and archiving photos in the background as they’re shot. The app also activates services in the YouBiq Cloud, including sharing and organization, while preserving the originals. The YouBiq app registers the date and time, location, direction, and camera orientation of every image. It attaches the information to the media file so it can be organized on the iPhone 4 and in the YouBiq Cloud.
The YouBiq App (US$2.99 with 2GBof storage on the YouBiq Cloud) is pending approval. Once approved, it will be available for download from the Apple App Store. The YouBiq Cloud offers additional storage in 25GB increments for $25/year. The Gymbl Grip and Tripod is $69 and a Gymbl Tripod Adaptor is $49. They’re due in the spring.
