A decade ago, I witnessed a glorious sunset over the Mediterranean from the unique vantage point of a cliff on the edge of Oia, a beautiful village on the Greek island of Santorini -- me, my wife and a few dozen other visitors. Everyone was facing the setting sun with all cameras pointed out over the water.Fast-forward to this week: The rooftop restaurant overlooking Marrakech's Jemaa el-Fnaa square at sunset was crowded with tourists taking pictures. But they weren't facing the setting sun -- they had their backs to the sunset and were taking selfies.My wife and I chuckled and shook our heads at these ridiculous tourists making duck faces and shamelessly posing for the cameras and smartphones they held (before turning to take a few dozen selfies of our own.) This change in behavior -- the taking of selfies and other photographs inspired and driven in part by social sharing -- is the key to the future of business, marketing and the artificial intelligence age.It's time to get serious … [Read more...] about Inside the trillion-dollar selfie industrial complex

Yes, the selfie sticks are here to stay — no matter the fact that many people view them as a symbol of shallow narcissism and the oversharing culture, make fun of their users, and that they have been banned from some public spaces due to the potential dangers they pose if swung around. In fact, they are evolving into something that can actually be even more dangerous, if not also more ridiculous to watch if it becomes a fad. Meet ROAM-e – a drone designed specifically for selfies. This little fellow's job is to always hover around you, either to take the perfect photo or to live stream the footage. The device employs facial recognition technologies to keep its eye on you and will, at default, not stray further than 80 feet (25 meters); it also has a Follow Me mode, which will keep it following you at a constant distance of 10 feet (3 meters). To round its functions off, there's a panoramic mode, which has the drone spin around and deliver a 360-degree shot. ROAM-e … [Read more...] about Selfie sticks are so 2015 — selfie drones are in!
