Usually it is believed that sad lonely people are addicted of taking too much selfies. For that purpose the selfie-stick has bestowed the world with an invaluable tool for documenting every self-centered whim.
However, to reduce some of the stigma of being photographed alone against whatever stunning background a person finds, artists Justin Crowe and Aric Snee are exhorting the world’s loneliest selfie lovers to trade in their telescopic poles for “selfie arms.”
The new design prototype Selfie arm constructed out of lightweight fiberglass material, gives selfie fanatics the illusion of having friends.
The arm pretends to belong to a close buddy, family member or significant other. “Nobody wants to look alone while they mindlessly snap pictures of themselves,” Justin Crowe’s website says, a tad judgmentally.
The lonely people may get the feeling by this fake arm and will have their own fake perception of being with someone, but here rises a question. With whom they’ll be sharing those photos if they have no one to be with?
I bet @thisisdavid is the first person I know to get the fake arm selfie stick. pic.twitter.com/lpoZdI7AiI— Tim Evans (@tim_evans) April 28, 2015
Well for me this arm looks bit creepy.
