When the historians of 2190 eventually get around to examining our era closely, what do you think they’ll deduce? Will it be, what an amazingly artistic culture we have? Or perhaps they’ll acknowledge that we invented a crude but effective global communication system? Nope, none of the above. They’ll look at our short, but intensive obsession with self-photography and conclude that we’re a bunch of narcissistic morons.
Proof m’lud is in this RK88E 13 in 1 Selfie Kit, which is billed as the ultimate way to grab those all important photos of ourselves in outrageous circumstances. Or something. Yes folks, now there’s absolutely no excuse for us all not to rush around taking selfie snaps and boring the cat to tears (or whatever cats do when they’re fed up).
The manufacturers would particularly like you to know that this is a premium product in every way, from the specially ‘humanized‘ handle, to the sophisticated Bluetooth controller software, which lets you manage focal length as well as press the shutter from a distance.
You also get a handy wireless remote, tripod function, LED synch flash, GoPro compatibility, a climbing buckle, a wide angle lens, rear view mirror viewfinder, and a macro charging line (whatever the heck that is). What you won’t get is any sense of taste or cultural empathy. Just a series of mind-blowingly boring shots of you in front of the Eiffel Tower or something. The whole thing is priced at $42.00. Sigh.
