This Camera Remote Helps You Take the Perfect Selfie

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked LA editor Natalie Alcala.

Smartphone camera remote, $24.19 at

In case you missed it, "selfie" is the Oxford English Dictionary's word of the year. To help me embrace this shameless phenomenon sans awkward posing, I'm investing in a smartphone camera remote like any self-respecting social media fiend would do.

Firebox's version is better than others because it's cute, compact, cordless and easy to use. Simply download the device's free iPhone app to connect, then use the accompanying stand to prop up your phone. Hurry, hands-free selfies await!
