make a selfie stick out of nearly anything”
Amsterdam, Netherlands – On September 20 2016, co-founders Teun, Sam, Otto and Emelie launched a Kickstarter campaign for SELFSKIE, a durable mount that turns any stick into a selfie-stick. There are dozens of GoPro and Smartphone mounting options out there, but none of them let us attach our cameras to cylindrical objects that we already have around us. After only 6 days their project was fully funded.
“Why bring a selfie-stick when you’re already holding a stick? The SELFSKIE is the world’s best all-in-one mount that allows you to use your Smartphone and GoPro on the stick you’re already using – such as your ski pole, golf club, umbrella or your fishing rod,” suggests the team, “Be creative. You’ll never need a selfie-stick again!”
During a wintersport vacation I was surprised when I saw skiers struggle to get out their clunky selfie-stick and take a group photo. I wondered… Why bring a selfie-stick when you’re already using a ski pole? I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a clever, simple tool on the market that addressed this issue. I decided to quit my job and pursue my lifelong dream of creating a product myself. Luckily, some of the smartest people I know joined me. – Emelie van Wensen
The SELFSKIE has been cleverly engineered and designed for easy use. You can leave it attached to your stick during your whole trip or vacation and it will be ready to use when you need it. Keeping in mind that conditions can get a little rough when you’re engaged in outdoor activities, the team designed SELFSKIE to be very sturdy, using only durable, top quality materials. The SELFSKIE was also tested to make sure that it could withstand the most extreme weather temperatures.
To take a picture, simply flip up the grabbing arm and mount your Smartphone to your stick in one easy motion. You can use the self-timer on your smartphone or the integrated Bluetooth Remote to snap your shot without ever having to ask a stranger to take your picture again! If you prefer to use an action camera, the creators have you covered there too. The grabbing arm can be easily removed so you can attach any action camera compatible with the GoPro mount.
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including one SELFSKIE for as little as €16, two SELFSKIES for €31, and more. Backers can also pledge €60 for four SELFSKIES (perfect for a family) or €280 for the Team Deal, which includes 20 SELFSKIES.
