Selfie sticks have quickly become the must-have accessory for tourists. They’re everywhere now: often obnoxious, sometimes dangerous. Japan has even taken measures to ban selfie sticks in certain areas. But for one Japanese enthusiast it was embarrassment and self-consciousness that kept him from using a selfie stick.
So he did what any self-respecting creator/engineer would do. He made selfie arms.
The engineer, who goes by the name mansoon, bought fake hands from amazon and connected them to a selfie stick. He then sewed together a tailored shirt to accommodate his new selfie arms. You can read the tongue-in-cheek documentation over on omocoro, where he admits that his new selfie arms drew more attention to him than regular selfie sticks.
Mansoon also has a website where he documents his other quirky creations including a real-life Windows 95 recycle bin, an eraser that rolls of a table by itself and a device that automatically tests the fluffiness of steamed bread.
