SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Joby Inc., creator of the award-winning Gorillapod™ flexible camera tripod and a leading developer of innovative consumer electronics accessories, will unveil the highly anticipated Zivio™ Bluetooth® Headset at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), taking place Jan. 7-10 in Las Vegas, NV. On showcase at the Joby booth, #71037, at the Sands Convention Center, the Zivio is an elegant, high performance Bluetooth headset that sets new standards in design, performance and mobile freedom.
The Zivio's revolutionary extendable, flexible microphone boom gives users the freedom to communicate in any environment, even the extremely noisy and windy surroundings that traditionally cripple headsets. The product is equipped with interchangeable earpieces and soft gel caps to provide all-day comfort, as well as an optional ear loop for a custom fit. A sleek and lightweight headset, the Zivio can be worn on the left or right ear and will be available in a variety of colors.
Following the Gorillapod's huge success at CES 2007, Joby is also introducing the latest Gorillapod innovations at its booth in the Sands Convention Center. New additions to the Gorillapod line up include the Gorillapod Go-Go!™, a mobile entertainment kit designed to allow users to hold, position, or attach a variety of electronic devices anywhere on the go, and new eco-friendly packaging in celebration of CES's "go green" efforts.
"Over the past 12 months our development team has been working hard to create products that improve the everyday consumer's life, allowing flexibility and freedom from the constraints of technology," said JoeBen Bevirt, founder of Joby. "With the unveiling of the Zivio and the Gorillapod Go-Go!, our goal is to deliver two new products that simplify the connection between consumers and high-tech devices, ultimately creating a more enjoyable user experience. We are thrilled to introduce these products at this year's CES."
