Joby Gorillatorch™

COLOGNE, Germany - Joby, the world renowned designer of the Gorillapod™ flexible camera tripod, is pleased to introduce its Gorillapod and Gorillatorch™ product lines to the hardware market at this year's International Hardware Fair, taking place February 28 - March 3 in Cologne, Germany.

Joby will showcase both product lines, in addition to its Gorillamobile™ line, at the Joby booth, Hall 4.2 Booth C-19, Koelnmesse, demonstrating its commitment to making thoughtfully-designed, revolutionary products that meet the creative and active needs of the hardware consumer.

Launched in October 2009, the Gorillatorch flashlight casts a focused beam of intense light and allows you to illuminate any target, hands-free. In a shift from traditional flashlight design, the Gorillatorch features a 65 lumen ultra-bright CREE LED lamp mounted on Joby's award-winning ball-and-socket legs. Combined with its powerful magnetic feet, the Gorillatorch will grip to virtually anything, making it the perfect lighting solution for the outdoor enthusiast and do-it-yourself handyman. Other smart features include a dimmer switch for energy conservation, rubberized ring and foot grips, and water resistance. Wrap it around a tree branch, hang it from a tent-pole, secure it to a boat rail - the Gorillatorch's applications are only limited by your imagination.

Expanding on the Gorillatorch product line, Joby is pleased to announce three new Gorillatorch colors - blue, orange and yellow. Joby looks forward to introducing more exciting additions to the Gorillatorch family later this year.

Joby is also thrilled to show the Gorillapod Magnetic flexible tripod which was announced at the Photo Marketing Association International tradeshow in Anaheim, CA on February 22nd. The world's most versatile tripod is now even more adaptable! With the addition of powerful magnets in the feet, the Gorillapod Magnetic can now be anchored to any magnetic surface, in addition to being secured with its fully-articulating legs. Stick it to a pole, wrap it around a tree-branch, or perch it on a jagged rock - the positioning possibilities are truly endless.

The Gorillatorch is available in stores now, and the Gorillatorch new colors and the Gorillapod Magnetic will be available in April.

All of Joby's products will be on display at the Joby booth, Hall 4.2 Booth C-19, Koelnmesse.
