THE SMILE HIGH CLUB Drones have a very im­por­tant new job: tak­ing your self­ies

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Contents -

It is a truth uni­ver­sally ac­knowl­edged that the selfie stick is even more an­noy­ing than the words ‘un­ex­pected item in bag­ging area’. So it’s wel­come news that a slew of al­ter­na­tive ways to cap­ture your own face are now here. HTC has cre­ated a phone whose sides you ‘squeeze’ to ac­ti­vate the cam­era, thereby avoid­ing the phone-lock­ing calamity that of­ten oc­curs mid-selfie, while the ‘anti-grav­ity’ phone case (try Qteey’s, £7.99) sticks to walls, al­low­ing for a more sub­tle mug shot. But our favourite is the AirSelfie, a £240 drone, which is op­er­ated via your phone. Just pose, press a but­ton and the oblig­ing ob­ject will hover mid-air to cap­ture a flat­ter­ing snap from above. A god­send for those with dou­ble chins. Not so much for those with a bald patch.
