The Selfie is Officially Over Thanks to the Selfie Arm


The selfie stick took self-obsessed, ‘is my pout right’ selfies to a whole new level and I’m guilty. But just when we thought the world couldn’t become any more chronically narcissistic, here comes the selfie arm.

The Selfie Arm is an actual prosthetic arm that holds your phone for you in its fake hands to take a picture of you. It’s slightly different from the Selfie Stick because the arm is designed to give the impression users are holding hands with someone else.


And I’m done.

So in case you’re weird enough to want to hold a grayish, ghostly hand to perhaps make your ex jealous or to show your girls you’ve moved on after a bad breakup, go get the Selfie Arm, girl!

But not so fast, the Selfie Arm is just a prototype. Yes, it’s fake.


Selfie Arm creators Aric Snee and Justin Crowe imagined the arm to make fun of society. Yes, the joke is on us.

“The collaborative project is a direct commentary on the growing selfie stick phenomenon and the constant, gnawing need for narcissistic internet validation,” the artists tells Design Boom.
