Felsuma LLC Announces New GECKSKIN® Products for Sale
New products using GECKSKIN® technology allow users to experience new, reusable Grip & Peel™ items
Inspired by the mechanics of the gecko foot, the products of Felsuma LLC, based in Somerville, Mass., USA, have many uses. They grip various types of surfaces to allow hanging, holding, or attaching items–without damage—much like geckos themselves.
Felsuma’s first three re-usable products feature different designs, multiple materials, and a range of weight-bearing capabilities, and are now available on http://www.buygeckskin.com
“GECKSKIN was originally created to work in much the same manner as a gecko’s foot, which easily attaches to and detaches from a wide range of surfaces,” says Al Crosby, a co-inventor of the GECKSKIN technology.
The GRIPLOOPTM is an ultra-lightweight, transparent loop that will Grip & Peel multiple surfaces. Consumers can use them to hang objects like holiday light strings or a phone or power cord. The transparent GRIPHANGERTM is notable for its Grip & Peel of heavier weights (up to 5 lbs.) by simply hanging the device over a door or side of a table. The GRIPSEALTM is designed to seal windows or other surface areas that leak cold or hot air.
All of the products are reusable—none will damage the surfaces they touch. GECKSKIN is a platform technology from professors Al Crosby and Duncan Irschick, who created their revolutionary invention at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
The University’s patents were licensed to the startup Felsuma to develop this technology for multiple consumer and industrial market applications. “With GECKSKIN technology as a foundation, our products will change the way we think about solving everyday problems. From hanging items that you readily need but never have a place for, or closing apparel items without making annoying noise, Geckskin technologies will provide solutions, while reducing waste.” says Felsuma CEO, Rana K. Gupta.
In addition to these three products, which can be shipped to customers, the company is also accepting pre-orders for other GECKSKIN devices, including a powerful carbon fiber GECKSKIN holding device, the GRIPHOOK CF™ and a fun new product called the GRIPCORD™.
All products are offered for sale on http://www.buyGECKSKIN.com and can be shipped directly to customers.
