At last! The selfie hat!

15 September 2014

selfie hat It's London Fashion Week! And you know what, where better a place than to showcase this marvellous selfie sombrero. Say that again to yourself, out loud.

"Selfie sombrero."

The 'brainchild' (used very loosely in this case) of designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis and Acer, the Selfie Hat is a snip at £599.

Yes, for just £599, you could model the hat, which is able to spin and take pictures of you from all angles and is dubbed the 'Christian Cowan-Sanluis x Acer Selfie-Hat', it really is quite the thing.

Cowan-Sanluis has designed for that Lady Gaga in the past, so 'reasonably normal' is probably not a brief he adheres to.

The camera will assess which is your best side, as well as documenting these and posting them to social networks on your behalf. It's probably at this point when concerned friends will wonder if you're having some form of mental breakdown.

Acer, possibly pissing on a bucket of cash, claim: "We wanted to work with someone young and fresh, that not only understands the selfie culture, but both currently is part of it and works with people in it".

Cowan-Sanluis explains: "With the hat, we wanted to take an element from my last collection, but correspondingly integrate the most popular zeitgeist there is in technology at the moment, the selfie. We also wanted to give it a fun and playful approach, but that in the end helps the user to better understand their face when taking a self-portrait."

"There has been a lot of articles over the last year looking at how the selfie has gotten so big and being monetised on, celebrities such as Kim Kardashian making a selfie book and the term becoming part of mainstream society."

"But on the other side, a lot of people taking selfies struggle to find the full potential of their front-facing camera when they use their hand. The hat helps to perfect the shot, either if it's a cute, sexy or silly selfie."

It is literally the worst thing ever.
