Hisy

Here’s a problem all selfie-enthusiasts should be very familiar with — stretching your arms out as far as possible to take a selfie with your smartphone, only to realise you can’t reach the capture button on your screen. The Hisy aims to solve this. This wireless camera remote connects to your phone via Bluetooth so you can easily take pictures, no matter how far away you are, or how awkward the angle.

Pooch Selfie

This one is for those of you who like taking selfies with your pets but can never get them to stay still. The Pooch Selfie is a plastic clip-on that holds a tennis ball to your phone, which in turn will attract your pet’s (more specifically, dog’s) attention long enough for you to snap a few pictures. It’s essentially a device to attach a ball to your phone, but hey, the beauty is in its simplicity, isn’t it?

Selfie Cork

Never take shaky photos after a night out drinking with your friends ever again. The Selfie Cork, as its name suggests, is a contraption that turns any bottle (with a skinny neck and mouth) into a monopod for you to secure your phone on for a steady shot. We love how simple and small this is, plus you can use it as a bottle stopper when you’re not in a selfie-taking mood.

Ty-Lite

We’ve seen ring lights for smartphones on the market, but what sets Ty-Lite apart is its great functionality. You can choose from not one, but three light settings (cool, warm and brilliant), then decrease or increase the brightness according to your preference. It also doubles up as a protective case so you don’t have to worry about dropping your phone while holding it precariously to take a photo. Psst, the Ty-Lite was created by Beyoncé’s stylist Ty Hunter, so you’ll be getting a selfie accessory tried and tested by Queen Bey herself.

Cliquefie

It doesn’t look the part, but the Cliquefie is actually a super-mod selfie stick made for those who are too embarrassed to use a regular selfie stick in public. And it’s not just pretty - it’s practical as well. Each stick is made of durable stainless steel and can be shortened for easy storage. Comes with a built-in tripod and Bluetooth remote too.

Self-portraits have been around for a long time (since 1839), but the term ‘selfie’ was only coined in 2005 by photographer Jim Krause. Since then, the selfie has been included in the Oxford dictionary, been named Word of the Year for 2013, and even has a TV show named after it. Plus, over a million selfies are taken a day, so to say we’ve become obsessed with taking selfies is an understatement. If you’re looking to upgrade your selfie-game, photo-edited apps and filters alone just don’t cut it — here are five smartphone add-ons that will make your mug look amazing at the photo-taking stage.
