Acer’s Selfie Hat, a sombrero with a dangling tablet

There’s the selfie stick (or the selfie pod) and then there’s the Selfie Hat. It is Acer’s Iconia 8 tablet that literally hangs on the side of a big, glittering sombrero that should effortlessly take those precious selfies.

Users of the Selfie Hat could easily rotate the sombrero 360 degrees to capture different angles of their faces. To have more variation of shots, wearers could also simply tilt their heads up and down to produce different perspectives.

The Selfie Hat came from the mind of a 20-year old fashion designer that has previously worked with the likes of Lady Gaga and Rita Ora. The production of this hat is a collaboration between Acer and the designer for the upcoming London Fashion Week. Interested buyers, if there are any, could arrange for a consultation and order one but pricing is yet to be disclosed.

So, who’s up to wear a Selfie Hat?
