ShutterBall Makes Taking Duckface Selfies a Snap (Sadly)

 |  |  |  |  |  November 5, 2013


I’m not sure how I feel about a product designed to make it easier for people to take selfies with their smartphone camera. I’ll admit some selfies are pretty hot, but the inevitable duckface really ruins the whole medium.

To make selfies less about showing a picture of the camera in the mirror, Audiovox has announced the ShutterBall.

This round ball is a Bluetooth remote shutter actuator for the iPhone and some Samsung Galaxy devices. The remote control works in conjunction with an application available at no cost on Google Play and the App Store. Note that only the Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, or Note 2 are compatible with the Android app.

The ball uses low-energy Bluetooth technology and has a 60-foot range. It comes with a coin cell battery installed promising up to five years of use. The ShutterBall is available for $24.99(USD) in several colors and even ships with a stand to prop your smartphone up for selfie shooting.
