You’ve been told for years now to stop using selfie sticks. They’re obnoxious, they’re annoying to others, and they make everyone’s vacation photos look the same. It seems even gravity has now had enough of the stupid accessories, as this paraglider discovered while soaring at 2,500 feet in the air.
It takes a healthy amount of vanity to gift someone a portrait of yourself, but a life-size, lickable, lollipop version of your face? That would require something closer to full-blown narcissism—or a private, long-running in-joke I never want to be a part of.
If a museum hosts a tacky holiday party, it should be aware that it could bring in the type of people that will vandalize and steal historic art. Case in point: Authorities say an attendee at an ugly sweater party at The Franklin Institute snuck into the museum’s Terracotta Army exhibit last December, cracked off a…
University of Connecticut dental school grad students and an orthodontics professor took a selfie “with two severed heads used for medical research at a training workshop at Yale University” in 2017, the Associated Press reported on Monday.
From the annals of bad science reporting comes this latest confusion: Media outlets completely misconstrued the results of a study about a supposed selfie mental disorder—a study that itself was inspired by a hoax that also fooled media outlets three years earlier.
Since mid-2016, Apple’s iPhone Photos app has used metadata analysis and image-recognition technology to sort users’ photos automatically and tag them for easy extraction. The categories include everything from various animals to inanimate objects like furniture—but as Twitter user @ellieeewbu noted on Monday, it also…
Science has already proven that certain camera lenses can distort your face (so don’t worry if you just can’t seem to look right in photos), but there’s more that can go into your appearance in a selfie. For instance, the closer the camera is to your face, the larger your nose looks, the smaller your ears look, and…
It’s not really not the ending that anyone expected for one of LA’s most bizarre police chases ever.
In the future, your slightly awkward selfies will do more than just get you a few compliments from your grandmother: They might also help you shop for toilet paper, lube, and all the other things you secretly buy on Amazon.
If only one photo survives the nuclear apocalypse, I hope it’s this one. Ted Cruz is taking a selfie with confused onlookers as his other hand hangs in the air like normal humans would pose. This photo sums up politics in 2016 as far as I’m concerned.
The Ty-Lite Selfie Case, developed by Beyoncé’s stylist Ty Hunter, does the thing it sets out to do. It takes well-lit selfies—enveloping its users in a sensuous vanity-light glow. Ty Hunter will always have a special place in my heart, because he styled Solange for her “Losing You” video, and he styled Beyoncé’s…
Mumbai police have established 15 “no selfie” zones around the Indian city after an 18-year-old girl drowned last week while taking a picture of herself.
When a United Airlines flight made an emergency landing this summer due to medical situations on board, as the oxygen masks fell down, some passengers’ phone cameras went up. But psychologists say the instinct to snap a selfie in a near-death experience isn’t all narcissism—it’s also about survival and…
We’re only a few weeks out from IFA, but if you were hoping for a preview of this year’s most eccentric devices, Chinese company Huawei has you covered. This is our very first peek at the new Honor 7i, where a flippable, selfie-ready camera takes center stage. Or the world’s fanciest high tech phone projectile. You…
Taking selfies with wild animals is utterly moronic, and yet that fact isn’t dissuading Yellowstone tourists from trying to snap smiling vacation photos alongside bison. On Tuesday, a 43-year-old Mississippian woman attempting this misguided stunt was charged by the angry animal and tossed in the air before escaping.
If you’re thinking of visiting Disneyland or Walt Disney World this summer you better keep your selfie stick at home. That’s right, the Happiest Place[s] on Earth have officially banned everyone’s favorite techno-panic of 2015.
Pretty cool idea right!
Pizza Hut stopped tasting good a long time ago. The company’s recent parody of selfie sticks, however, is spot on.
We've all had a glorious, photo-worthy wipe out or two in our lives (or, if you're clumsy like me, this happens on a pretty regular basis.) But few of us have succeeded in capturing the essence of such an event like photographer Derek Johnson.
Love our selfie-obsessed culture or hate it, this video of a man walking around the bustling streets of London trying to photograph himself and his fellow pedestrians with an absurdly long, hand-crafted selfie stick is sure to make you smile.
