The Year In Pictures @ Platform 11.1 + Launch of Joby Photo Contest

Posted on Jan 05, 2011 in Announcements, News: Camera Supports, Joby

What better way to start the new year than by looking back at some of the most inspirational and captivating images from 2010? That's exactly what we did at Platform 11.1 two nights ago.

The Year in Pictures, as the event is aptly named, features the top three photos from everyone's collection - those that are close to your heart - and not just that, we also got to see the photos taken by photojournalists from Associated Press and Straits Times. Some heartwarming, some heartwrenching, some uplifting, some thought-provoking, but all beautifully taken with passion and creativity.

Inspiring the creative lifestyle is what Joby is all about, so we decided to do a little something with Joby at Platform 11.1. The Platform team, which includes Tay Kay Chin, Ernest Goh, Darren Soh and Leonard Goh, came up with a really cool and fun video showing you just what they did with their Joby in 2010 and we loved it! Catch it here at Platform's Facebook Group.

Take a look at our Joby booth at the event:



Can you spot the two new Joby products that were just launched at CES in Las Vegas? They are the Gorillamobile Ori & Gorillamobile Yogi for iPad! (Yup, that's them in the picture below, on the right!) Read more about these two products here.


Who would have thought that Joby Gorillapod could be used as a tool for hanging decorations? The Platform team did and showed it in their Joby video :)


And then there was the Joby giveaway... 

Congratulations to the lucky five who walked away with Joby products!


And then we launched the Joby Photo Contest with the Platform team:
