Octa Announces Spider Monkey(TM) and Lynx(TM), New Tablet Accessories in Time for the Holidays

DENVER, Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Octa, a Denver-based startup that creates mobile mounting solutions, today announced the availability of the Spider Monkey(TM) and Lynx(TM) in time for the holiday shopping season. The Spider Monkey and Lynx allow users to enjoy their tablets in previously impossible ways, offering comfortable solutions for unexpected environments. From streaming popular TV shows in bed to taking time-lapse photography in the wilderness, Octa’s accessories accommodate your most unique and personalized need.

“We designed the Spider Monkey and Lynx to be dynamic and adaptable,” said Prometheus Trotsky, Octa’s founder and product inventor. “With the proliferation of tablets, we’re constantly looking for ways to help users get more from their device.”

The Spider Monkey will change its user’s perspective–literally. It lifts your tablet safely into the air, providing hands-free, eye-level comfort. Wrap, curl, or tuck the Spider Monkey in place in bed, on the couch, and elsewhere. Its flexible steel skeleton will hold a variety of shapes, creating a new level of relaxation while reading, chatting, watching movies, or browsing the Web.

The Lynx, an honoree of the coveted 2015 CES Innovation Award, provides a gravity-defying stand that works throughout the home and on all your adventures. An all-purpose tablet solution, it adapts to your changing needs. Clamp it to flat, round, or irregular surfaces. Mount it on a table, to a high chair, on a treadmill, to a tripod, on an easel, to a hammock, in a classroom, and more. The Lynx holds any tablet anywhere, making your apps, media, communications, and creativity more accessible than ever.
