The tool everyone loves to hate, the selfie stick, has seen better days. The 21st century telescoping invention for the average narcissist has reportedly been banned at this year’s upcoming Worldwide Developer’s Conference (WWDC.)
According to David Goldman of CNN Money, all selfie sticks will be forbidden, along with professional photography and GoPro cameras. Goldman also goes on to write…
“The only thing more embarrassing than being caught in public using a Selfie Stick is being thrown out of an event for using one. Though Apple didn’t explicitly state why selfie sticks were banned, they likely pose a liability issue for Apple (people getting whacked by them). And they’re just generally a nuisance.”
Selfie Stick are not recognized for professionalism and are currently a mere fad in social media photography. While a few WWDC attendees might be disappointed in the news, most professional tech reporters who plan to attend WWDC will let out a collective sigh of relief.
WWDC will commence June 8, 2015 at Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
