The selfie stick has bestowed the world with an invaluable tool for documenting every self-centered whim. However, to reduce some of the stigma around snapping a selfie alone, artists Justin Crowe and Aric Snee are exhorting the world’s loneliest shutterbugs to trade in their telescopic poles for “selfie arms.”
The new design prototype, constructed out of lightweight fiberglass material, gives selfie fanatics the illusion of having friends, as the arm pretends to belong to a close buddy, family member or significant other.
“Nobody wants to look alone while they mindlessly snap pictures of themselves,” Crowe’s website says, a tad judgmentally.
This does beg the question, though: With whom are these selfie-arm photo-takers actually sharing their photos?
