No stopping the selfie train

Ahh the selfie. Instagram and FB feeds are full of friends and family members’ posts, many of them aiming for the perfect selfie. We have written about how to take the perfect selfie, how to enhance your selfie, and why selfies seem to be so popular.

One thing is certain: Selfies are here to stay, and as long as you’re partaking in the selfie game, you might as well aim to be MVP.


Your road to selfie perfection

If you’ve been trying to perfect your selfie portfolio for a while, you know all about the selfie stick. Selfie sticks are great for taking group photos and capturing family vacations so that no one is left out of the shot, but carrying one of those sticks around all day can be inconvenient. Another useful tool for selfies is a wireless remote. This allows you to set your phone in another location and wirelessly activate the shutter on your phone. Totally awesome, but again, carrying it around isn’t as convenient as it could be.

What’s the answer for the selfie lover?

Put it all together, of course

A new premium selfie case, Flip It, wants to make taking selfies easier. Flip It is a compact, protective hard shell case for iPhoe 6/6s. It has a fully built-in selfie stick with Bluetooth remote, plus a kickstand.

The selfie stick flips out from the back of the case. The steel arm telescopes out to 22 inches when fully extended. The Bluetooth remote can be activated from up to 25 feet away. The Bluetooth remote/handle separates from the case by simply sliding it off; easy to put in your hand or pocket and the slide back into the case when you’re finished. The kickstand is built-in to the remote, and is super helpful for those group shots at dinner.

Plus extras – great for social media personalities

Flip It also plans to offer a range of accessories compatible with the case. Some proposed accessories include a tripod, bicycle mount, guitar mount, and more. It’s a pretty good alternative to carrying around a selfie stick and wireless remote on vacations and other outings.

It also saves you the hassle of re-positioning your phone into the traditional selfie stick mounting brackets over and over as the Flip It case is built-in and no re-adjustments are needed. Even if you don’t take a ton of selfies, this would be pretty neat to have on vacation.

What do you think? Would you use the Flip It case?
