Sadly, the Gorillamobile isn't a suped up car for a superhero primate—but it is a very cool tripod for your mobile devices.
The flexible ball-and-socket tripod legs can affix to or balance on just about any surface and it is compatible with almost any kind of mobile device that you might want to use hands-free. Expect it to be available in late summer for $US35.
