Selfie Stick Description
The selfie stick was created long before the front-facing camera was even thought of as smartphones were not in existence. With the older versions dying out in obscurity the selfie stick we know today was patented in 2005 by Wayne Fromm. A Canadian inventor who called his version the Quik Pod.
In less than a decade after that the selfie stick was available all over the world from the most high-end electronics stores to street-hawkers, given that range of availability the price range and quality is just as varied. One can extend their arm only so much so the selfie stick was created to be able to hold the phone further and getting in more people in a shot or even more of the background view. This was also why it has been such a hit with tourists internationally. This has led to some places banning the selfie sticks even just for nuisance value so be careful where you take it along!
Today the selfie stick is still produced by an endless number of brands and available in just as many colours. The ones with a wire that fixes into a port on the smartphone so you can click the button to take a shot or the Bluetooth ones that also have a battery and let smartphones link up wirelessly to achieve the same. The prices between these 2 types do vary naturally. Which you pick is a matter of what kind of convenience you want and of course the budget you have set!
