The Gorilla Pod is a nifty invention, totally useful and practical at the same time. It comes from a innovative production group called Joby, based out of San Francisco, California, who started pioneering these products in 2006. It is essentially a tripod with a difference: what this tripod does differently to all other tripods is that it can hang itself wherever it wants. It looks like something out of the jungle with its ribbed and motionable bod — hence the name, no doubt. This animated product wraps itself around almost any surface, giving you a 360 degree view. Pretty amazing stuff.
