The 'Solocam' is a microphone-equipped selfie stick that is specially designed to help journalists film video footage without a camera crew. While a high-tech selfie stick may sound like an unnecessary product, the device may be extremely useful for bloggers, video journalists and performance artists.

The 'Solocam' is a basic selfie stick attached to a high-definition microphone. The microphone uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your smartphone, thereby facilitating hands-free audio and video recording. The comfortable joystick makes the device easy to control and allows the user to pan the camera up to 180 degrees. The Solocam is also synced to an accompanying app, which allows you to share and enhance videos while recording live footage.

The Solocam essentially eliminates the need for expensive camera equipment and a camera crew by helping journalists film and record their own video footage.
