Wireless Selfie iPhone Remote lets you be trigger happy

wireless-selfie-remoteIf there ever was a need for the world to know that selfies are here to stay, the most recent Academy Awards ceremony would be the ideal place to start. What has been deemed to be the most tweeted image ever with a gaggle of Hollywood stars in the selfie captured by a Samsung device depicted one major drawback – unless you are Mr. Fantastic, Reed Richards himself, you would be hard pressed to get a whole bunch of folks in the same photo without extra help such as a wide angle lens accessory. Alternatively, there is the $19.99 Wireless Selfie iPhone Remote.

The Wireless Selfie iPhone Remote pretty much sums up what it is capable of, albeit on an iPhone instead of an Android-powered device. With this accessory for your iPhone, you are able to snap photos from up to 10 feet away using a remote control. It is a snap to use, and will play nice with all iPhones and iPads that run on iOS 5.0 or newer. All that you need to do would be to plug the transmitter to the 3.5mm audio jack, place the iOS-powered device in a safe and yet strategic location, and press the aperture-like button on the remote. Voila! You end up with great looking selfies without breaking a sweat.
