Is this the creepiest gadget ever made?

Creepy-Selfie-Arm-by-artists-Aric-Snee-and-Justin.jpg

If there's anything that we've learnt in our time on this great big ball of rock and water it's that the world is a strange place. For everything great and good there will always be a bizarre curve ball thrown our way like the new MyIdol app, or Donald Trump's hair, but few rarely clock in quite as highly on the creep-o-meter as the 'Selfie arm.'

Sounding like a weird auto-erotic stimulation tool, the gadget takes the selfie craze to all new Ed Gein-levels of scary by ditching the usual telescopic pole attachment for an incredibly pale and slightly dead looking prosthetic arm. So that, regardless of how lonely your selfies are, you can convince the world that you're actually reaching out to a kind and cherished loved one. If your loved one has the cold pallid skin of a vampire, that is.
