Simply plug it in, grab the remote, and take selfies to your heart's content. Available in a multitude of colors, #TheSelfie really is the easiest way to take your own picture without the need of a tripod and remote shutter system.

#TheSelfie is able to integrate seamlessly with not only the iPhone camera, but can be used with social sites, as well. Load up Instagram, plug in your remote shutter release, and snap away.
