Imagine waking up one day, wondering what you'd have done with your life if you hadn't listened to your parents and gone into the family hairbrush business. "Everyone needs hairbrushes," they said, waggling a warning finger at your infant face, "it's a stable job, and it's not as if you're going to be a Hollywood actor, eh?" they'd add. The only downside to this, of course, is that every day of your life is the same because, after all, every hairbrush that could have been invented has already been invented.
Then, one day you listen to the song Selfie by The Chainsmokers, and all of a sudden a bolt of inspiration hits you. Selfies are, by their very nature, an act of vanity, so why wouldn't people want to fix their hair before immortalizing themselves on Instagram? Furiously, you run downstairs to your basement design lab and, after a month of sleepless nights, using a coffee can as an impromptu latrine and emaciated from a lack of food, you emerge with the Selfie Brush.
Retailing for $20, the Selfie Brush is an iPhone case with a difference, because it's also, you know, a brush. On one side, there's the bristles, and on the other, a sleeve that'll accept your smartphone so that when it comes time to take a picture, you can ensure that your hair is perfectly de-touseled. There's even a mirror that runs down the side of the iPhone slot that you can use, assuming that the preview window on the device itself is somehow not to your taste.
You know what? I'm done. I'm just done.
