Selfie sticks were the bane of human existence in 2014 and 2015. Now that we’re in 2016 and I have still yet to see a single selfie stick this year I’m beginning to regain faith in humanity. And not only have I not seen any selfie sticks this year, I’ve now seen the footage of a Swiss freeskier that’s going incredibly viral after he’s redesigned the selfie stick as we know it (to have no stick at all).
Nicolas Vuignier captured footage of him skiing using what he’s calling the ‘Centriphone’, and it’s fucking incredible:
In the description of the YouTube video Nicolas Vuignier claims that it took him more than two years of tinkering to get this product just right. Got it right he did, because I’ve never seen anything quite like that before.
This seems like a product that could change extreme sports as we know it. So if you’re interested in staying in the know you can check out Nicolas Vuignier’s Facebook Page, where he’s updating with a steady stream of Centriphone news.
