    Albeit the idea is creative, but it really makes my head hurt to know selfies are so much of a thing that people managed to invent a way to take a selfie without your arm or a toilet being in the shot.

    Why? 'Selfies' have been a thing for *centuries*. We even hang them in the National Gallery. Hell, back in the day those without artistic talent of their own would spend a fortune hiring others to do it for us, from paintings to tapestries and statuary. It's just more open to the general public these days, thanks to every mobile from a £50 POS upwards having a camera on it.

    I can see this drone having loads of uses. Everything from military applications to building surveys. Very cool and I would love one :)

    New technology for making better prostheses and improving workplace ergonomics is all well and good, but being able to take better selfies obviously is much more important. :p

    Someone should invent a camera with a self timer that can be placed on a flat surface, allowing the operator time to move into frame.

    They could call it the "shelfie".

    I think one of the best thing about the selfie craze is that we had the circus in town and they would give you a discount if you took a SELLFY with their advertisement.
