 Selfskie Lets You Transform Various Apparatus Into a Selfiestick.

The best selfie stick is the one you have with you.

For those too embarrassed to brandish a selfie stick when out in the wild, Selfskie have designed a covert solution that will transform any elongated rod into a monopod for your camera.

The product essentially acts as a tube mount which you can whip out and use for whatever occasion, provided there is a stick-shaped object nearby - just like a GoPro - but what makes Selfskie so interesting is that it also works with smartphones. The device can then be used be used with umbrellas, hockey sticks, golf clubs, hiking sticks, baseball bats, and swords providing you have one lying around.

The Selfskie features a locking mechanism that is said to hold a smartphone in place securely; however, whether or not it will be able to survive the impact of a golf swing remains unknown. A separate bluetooth remote is also available for taking snaps wirelessly when the selfie stick is being wielded around.

The tiny pocketable device is reminiscent of the mini Plaster Hand (which can stealthily be used in locations where tripods aren't permitted) and in much the same manner, the Selfskie's minimalist design also will skirt by unnoticed although we wouldn't recommend it.

The Selfskie has already successfully reached its €10,000 goal with 22 days to go. Those interested in owning the purest form of a selfie stick can back the project for €16 (US$18) on Kickstarter. See here for more details.
