This New Selfie Stick Is Shaped Like An Arm So You Don’t Look Like A Loser
A couple of artists named Aric Snee and Justin Crowe created this new “selfie arm” out of a lightweight fiberglass.
Nobody wants to look like a lonely loser when taking selfies. This new arm is supposed to fix that dilemma. This project was picked up by Gizmodo and then later by Petapixel.
The price tag on theses is not cheap. Justin Crowe is advertising 10 limited edition artists signed arms at $6200 each.
It’s a problem designed to solve a “quintessential problem”: “nobody wants to look alone while they mindlessly snap pictures of themselves.” By fashioning the stick to look like an arm, you instantly look 100% less lonely in your photos.
The project is meant to be “a direct commentary on the growing selfie stick phenomenon”.
The Selfie Arm is still a concept at this point, and hopefully if the pair ever decide to commercialize their creation they’ll make it look less dead and gray. But the idea might help to make the selfie stick fad seem slightly less awful because the resulting photos don’t actually look like you’re taking a picture of yourself.
It doesn’t talk or have emotions of any sort. you can even create fake accounts and use its finger to like all your images; its not you its the hand! ‘selfie arm’ is made of fiberglass, is lightweight and portable, and fortunately only a prototype. the collaborative project is a direct commentary on the growing selfie stick phenomenon, and the constant, gnawing need for narcissistic internet validation.
