Las Vegas – January 5, 2014 – Griffin Technology, one of the world’s foremost creators of innovations for everyday life, is rolling out new accessories that protect, enhance and add style to your mobile devices. From gadgets that entertain, to space-efficient power solutions, to fashion-forward and youth-focused mobile accessories, Griffin continues to be a driving force across a variety of consumer categories.
On display at CES 2014 is Griffin’s newest AppPowered toy – MOTO TC Rally, which debuted this holiday season. Griffin’s booth will feature a large, 14’ x 9’ elevated racetrack with banked corners that will encourage CES attendees to take MOTO TC Rally for a spin around the track. The new remote-controlled race car connects to iOS devices via Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE v4.0) and features super quick maneuvering capabilities via proportional steering; impact sensors that detect bumps and crashes changing the way the car handles; a fully independent, shock-absorbing suspension; power rear-wheel drive; and ground effect lighting.
Drivers can race one of two ways: ‘Race the Clock’ either solo or with friends to beat their best time using the included Lap Counter; or ‘Bump ‘n Run,’ allowing drivers to dish out virtual damage and earn points for attacks on their opponent’s car. Attacks include reducing an opponent’s speed (‘Snare’), tampering with a friend’s controls (‘Randomize’), and flipping their steering wheel (‘Flip’). The more damage a car incurs, the harder it is to drive. The app also includes bonuses to repair damage, add protective armor, and much more. MOTO TC Rally, regularly $99.99, is now available with special CES show pricing for $49.99 at store.griffintechnology.com/
CES attendees will have the opportunity to fly high with Griffin’s new app-powered HELO TC Chopper, a Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE v4.0) version of Griffin’s original twin-rotored HELO TC helicopter in high-visibility yellow. Using the free HELO TC Chopper App, users can fly the chopper in one of two ways: Touch Control, using the Multi-Touch display to maneuver the chopper; or Tilt-to-Fly mode, in which users tilt their iOS device to move the chopper forward, back and side to side. The Record & Recall feature can record and store up to three Flight Plans so users can repeat a favorite flight pattern easily. Make up routes among the furniture, missions to fly, obstacles to avoid, goals to achieve, and replay them later with friends. An Auto-Land feature brings HELO TC Chopper down for a safe landing with just a tap. HELO TC Chopper, regularly $49.99, is now available with special CES show pricing for $29.99 at store.griffintechnology.com/
MOTO TC Rally and HELO TC Chopper both require iOS 6.0 or later and are compatible with iPhone 5/5s, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (5th generation), iPad (3rd & 4th generations), iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad mini with Retina Display.
In addition to AppPowered toys, Griffin is expanding its soft and squishy KaZoo line, themed after lovable animals. New to launch at CES are KaZoo chargers, KaZoo iPad mini cases and a KaZoo stylus collection. Leading the lineup is the KaZoo Elephant Wall Charger for Lightning devices. This cute wall charger works in any AC outlet from 100 to 240 volts and is optimized to deliver fast, safe charging levels at 10 watts to all iPhone, iPad, and iPod models with Apple’s Lightning connector. KaZoo Elephant Wall Charger will be available this March for $29.99.
With the KaZoo for iPad mini, kids can now take their favorite zoo animal with them wherever they go. Made of durable, soft silicone, the KaZoo iPad mini cases stand upright on sturdy feet, positioning the device optimally for watching videos. The cases’s hollowed-out feet double as a convenient storage space for one of the new KaZoo styluses. KaZoo for iPad mini will come in three different animal friends, giraffe, panda and fox, and are available now for $39.99 each.
Write, sketch, tap and play with your iPad, iPhone, iPod or any other touchscreen using Griffin’s new KaZoo Stylus. The high-sensitivity stylus collection prevents scratches and smudges on touchscreens and is styled after a variety of fun animal friends including a monkey, turtle, penguin and elephant. The monkey and turtle KaZoo Styluses, $19.99 each, are available now, with additional animals slated to hit retail in March.
As a leader in the mobile power and connectivity space, Griffin’s booth will have a dedicated charging station featuring MultiDock, their premium business solution for charging, syncing, and docking multiple devices. Ideal for deployment in schools, businesses, and enterprise settings, MultiDock is available in two configurations: a single 10 bay unit and a stacked 30 bay cart complete with smooth rolling wheels, a handle and a lockable laptop tray. Six MultiDock units, capable of charging up to 60 devices at once, will be featured at Griffin’s CES booth, offering attendees a much-needed opportunity to charge their iOS, Android and other mobile devices on the showfloor.
Rounding out the new products on display is Griffin’s Spring 2014 fashion collection, comprising cases, styluses and screen care kits inspired by the latest motifs, patterns and color trends from around the globe. Mix-and-match accessories for Apple and Android devices come in a variety of bold prints and colors to accent any style, while providing the same level of protection and functionality many have come to expect from Griffin. Among the new case lineup is the Identity case collection, Journal folios, In the Jungle cases with playful animal prints, rhinestone-bedazzled Karats cases, Midtown Wallet cases, and fresh new zebra and polka dot Survivor designs, among others.
