Friendless? The Selfie Arm Could Make Your Solo Pics Look Less Lonely
An "conceptual prototype" seeks a way to make your selfies look less sad
“Nice to meet you, no one!”
For the especially self-conscious among us who worry that selfies are reminding everyone that you’re alone, here’s a possible solution: the Selfie Arm.
The device would allow you to snap photos of yourself so that it looks like you’re holding hands with a well-dressed gentleman.
Your camera phone would clamp in around where the elbow would be on the “arm,” but all that’s visible in the photo is the hand you’re holding.
The Selfie Arm was designed by artists Aric Snee and Justin Crowe. It was featured on Design Boom on Tuesday, which called it “a sarcastic solution to a quintessential problem – nobody wants to look alone while they mindlessly snap pictures of themselves.”
Design Boom also noted that the Selfie Arm is “fortunately only a prototype.”
