We've seen the selfie stick go from a laughable display of 21st century quirk to a regularly spotted tool of modern convenience. In the same way that people once posed for hand painted portraits, they now troll tourist destinations, long stick and mobile phone at the ready.

For now, we'll stick to our selfie sticks.
