  1. Ever thought you looked particularly unstylish when holding up your smartphone in front of your face to take a selfie? Didn't think so. Regardless, it appears Sony will imminently announce a new selfie camera styled to look like a perfume...

    This thing is too large to pass for a bottle of perfume. And to my knowledge women usually carry along small bottles. Large ones are for home use. I've never seen anybody pulling a perfume this large in public.

  4. Who the hell applies perfume at arm's length?

    yeah... or smiles when they apply it, or sprays it right into their face, right? "This perfume makes me so happy when I use it, I like to spray it in my eyes!"

    I don't think it's to trick people into thinking it's perfume, I think it's to give a selfie camera a little bit of style.

    Many women just spray it into the air and wave their arms through the mist. Makes for a more subtle effect. :)

    Sony missed the rickshaw here altogether, they should've made it look like vanity mirror and it could double up as a vanity mirror as well. Staring at a mirror is far less obvious than staring at a bottle of perfume at arms length grinning like a chesire cat. Hoo boy.

    This is a really stupid idea... you'd think that they would have done some user feedback tests before following through with this idea, to realize that nobody wants this. It's as if girls who take selfies now are ashamed of it, which they are not. When that day comes, I'll understand their decision to disguise cameras as other things.
