When you’re at a concert, visiting a landmark, or wandering around any big city; what are two of biggest photography-related annoyances regularly encountered? Almost universally, we’d expect the dreaded extended selfie stick poking everyone in the face, and the view-blocking use of a massive tablet to take pictures, to be right up near the top of everyone’s list.
Well, good news! In the future, these two could be combined into one, excessively irritating accessory. Behold, it’s the tablet selfie stick. On sale through AccessoryGeeks, it’s a thick, heavy duty strap and clip for attaching a tablet to a selfie stick, because sometimes, squinting at a phone screen just isn’t cool. What’s much cooler is holding a giant tablet way out in front of you, ready to bash some unsuspecting pedestrian over the head.
The strap is made of rubber, is adjustable so it can also secure a smartphone, and uses a standard 1/4-inch mount for sticks or tripods. Handily, the strap has a hook so it can double up as a support for your tablet, if you want to hang it on the wall — a little like the Lenovo Yoga Tablet. It’s recommended you only attach a tablet to a strong selfie stick, otherwise it may result in a very expensive accident. It would give onlookers a laugh, though.
Tablet-sporting selfie fans need pay out just $10 for the strap, but will have to supply their own stick, or pay $19 to get one with a sufficiently strengthened pole. A small price to pay if you really want to look like the guy in the picture above.
