Australia launches hands-free Selfie Service
Leave your selfie-stick at home! This September, Australian Tourism unveiled the world's largest selfie-service giving travelers an opportunity to capture their photo in designated locations around AU. The service works through ‘GIGA Selfie’ app that triggers a distant camera to take a short video clip showing zoomed-in and out clip of the subject surrounded by beautiful Australian scenery. The goal of the campaign is to lure more Japanese visitors, although they are certainly not the only ones excited by this development.
No doubt other cities will jump on the giga-selfie bandwagon and launch their own selfie platforms in coming months.
