It’s the End of the Selfie Stick

Now You Can Mount Your Phone on Anything, Anytime, to Get That Photo

By Hadley Tomicki ·
Dear Person Still Toting That Selfie Stick Everywhere You Go,

You look amazing. Really. Not foolish at all. Just keep doing you.



(Dear Everyone Else,

We’ve found a better way.

It’s called the ShowOff Super Mount. And if the name hasn’t given it away already, it helps mount your smartphone camera to basically anything, anywhere, to help you take pictures of yourself and the people you choose to hang out with.

Right, anywhere. It kills your need for a tripod. Or that selfie stick you’ve absolutely refused to obtain even though you kind of see where it could be useful during those times your arms won’t extend to 15 feet long on the Great Wall of China.

Anyway, this thing uses magnets to affix your phone to pretty much any surface you might want to take a photo from. You can put it on your clothes, your dashboard or the nearest metallic surface you can find at the summit of a long hike. We see you placing it on the railing of some private yacht where you’re planning to hoist a flute of something bubbly with a date.

And it comes with a tiny Bluetooth remote for taking said shot.

You see where this is all going. Basically, you have something that works better than a selfie stick for taking photos of yourself. That also looks measurably less like you’re holding a selfie stick.

Don’t tell that person up above, though.

We think they’re having fun.
