Bizarre Selfie Products

Editor Meghan Young Discusses Items That Help You Take Better Selfie Pics

— October 3, 2014 — Fashion
Selfie pics are becoming such an ingrained part of social media culture that companies are creating products to help you strengthen your selfie game. Trend Hunter's Meghan Young counts down her favorite picks for bizarre selfie products, from selfie-friendly tees to perfume shaped cameras and glitzy sombreros.

Good framing is an important quality in any photograph, which is why you can now purchase a geometric shirt that helps you get better shots. Or, if you are shy about snapping selfie pics in public, Sony sells a perfume bottle-shaped camera that looks like you are spritzing yourself instead. An (arguably fashionable) pink hat has a tablet holder attached to it for picture-taking purposes. Selfies are so popular Kim Kardashian has a book of photography coming out in Spring 2015 that contains 352 of her smartphone self-portraits.
Trend Themes
1. Selfie Accessories - Companies creating products to enhance selfie-taking experiences present opportunities for innovation in the fashion and technology industries.
2. Wearable Tech - The popularity of products like the geometric shirt and hat with tablet holder attached demonstrate potential for innovation in wearables.
3. Personalized Cameras - The development of cameras like Sony's perfume-shaped camera presents opportunities for innovative design and personalization in the camera industry.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - Incorporating technology and functionality into clothing items like selfie-friendly tees and tablet holder hats can lead to disruptive innovation opportunities within the fashion industry.
2. Technology - Creating personalized cameras and other selfie products like the glitzy sombrero present opportunities for disruptive innovation in the tech industry.
3. Photography - The self-portrait trend popularized by selfie culture and furthered by Kim Kardashian's selfie book present opportunities for disruption and innovation in the photography industry.
