Capitalizing upon our obsession with … ourselves, the same team that brought you the real-life Netflix and Chill Room has now outdone itself, creating a selfie stick capable of supporting a full-size MacBook. It’s being branded as an “art project” by the Moises, John Yuyi and Tom Galle team, who have created a whole website dedicated to their invention. And to be honest, seeing the expressions of those around the absurd device really does make the whole project worth it.
I mean, if you think really, really hard about it, you probably could come up with quite a few use cases for the MacBook selfie stick. Every once in awhile, the field of vision provided by an iPhone FaceTime just doesn’t cut it, so you’ve gotta bring out the big guns to really show off your surroundings. Or, maybe your phone has just broken, and the only alternative you have is to carry around a laptop … attached to a stick.
And if nothing else, it seems like a really great arm workout, you know? Who needs a gym when you can do bicep curls with your MacBook.
Of course, we laugh now, but we could soon be forced to eat our words if society really does find a good way to put these sticks to use. Because really, did anyone actually expect the selfie stick itself to take off the way it did?
So consider investing in this idea early, kids. Or better still, just make one of your own, and just maybe (like a strong, strong maybe), you’ll have tapped into the next million-dollar idea.
