Meet ShutterBall, the Best Thing to Ever Happen to Selfies

[ 0 ] Posted by on November 17, 2013

Who doesn’t love a good selfie? For those of you living under a rock, a “Selfie” is the term used to describe a photo taken by using the front or rear facing camera of a smartphone. The results are more often than not hilarious, and sometimes even nefarious – please Mr. W no more naked selfies I can no longer bare seeing your junk with my coffee at 6 am. Thus, while attending CES Unveiled in New York City, I came across the “ShutterBall”, a device so simple a gorilla could assuredly be taught to use it.

Suffice to say, the idea is simple enough. Its a ball with a tether that can be used as a remote shutter, the idea being that all you need to do is place the camera on a surface and ensure that you are positioned in front of the camera. Once you are in position, you simply press the button on the device and it releases the shutter. The device operates using Bluetooth, and requires a (free) app available for both iOS and Android. It comes with a coin-cell battery that is user replaceable. Additionally it is available in the black, green, blue, and pink color options.

The ShutterBall is a creation of AUDIOVOX ELECTRONICS CORP. This corporation actually encourages users to “Take perfect / epic selfies”. All in all its a nice little device which is currently available, and it only costs $24.99 – so for those of you looking to pick up a cute little holiday gift, here you go!
