The selfie stick was always in the cards. This movie from the 70s proves it.
Before we imagined smartphones, phablets and tiny cameras, a team from former Chekoslovakia pictured the selfie stick. In one movie from 1970 called Zabil Jsem Einsteina, Panov, a tiny camera with a small lens and flash appears at the end of a retractable pointer to snap a group selfie. What’s more, that selfie stick can print a photograph quicker than a Polaroid, at one of the extremities.
Of course, the movie depicts the future of our world, one in which “women grow beards and lose the ability to have children”. The comedy’s plot “thickens” when “a summit meeting is held at the United Nations, with the proposed solution of building a time machine. The decision is made to travel back in time and murder Einstein, with the hopeful result being that without the noted mathematician’s research there will be no atomic bombs.”
