BERGEN COUNTY - A New Jersey invention has been creating buzz lately. Yofo, an accessory for cell phones, hits the marketplace this week.

The accessory serves as a pedestal so gamers can play videos better or use as a kickstand to watch movies. Yofo can even wrap headphones.

The invention was created by John Vons, a Bergen County resident, who started inventing products after he lost his job after 20 years.

Vons says he found inspiration for the product at the Jersey Shore. Vons says he also had discussions with Steve Jobs about the product.
