There Are Whole Booths Filled With Selfie Sticks At CES

If you get away from the main convention hall at CES, you can see some different stuff.

For instance, I saw a few booths dedicated to making selfie sticks in the hall that has nothing but Chinese manufacturers.

Selfie sticks are a suddenly hot item. They allow people to extend their phones away from their bodies and take selfies. It allows the selfie-r to get more in the shot.

I tried to ask someone at the booth if selfie sticks are booming in popularity right now.

Alas, something got lost in translation, and all I was told was that if I wanted to get an order of selfie sticks they would be able to do it quickly. 

Here are some photos of the booths:
