A quick and easy way to take a selfie (or any other picture, for that matter) is to use a remote shutter/trigger. These small key-chain looking gadgets let you take photos without touching the camera. They are easy to use, and all you’ll need is to download an app for the shutter model you are using and you’ll be set to start “selfieing”.

Narrative shook the world of wearables last year by introducing its mini-clip-on camera. The idea is simple: you clip it onto your clothes, a bike or a hat – and the mini device then takes photos every 30 seconds – basically, recording your whole day.

Yes, this would not technically be a selfie – but when you are turning yourself into a photographic machine to record every minute of your life – there’s lots of “self” involved.
