Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

MWC 2014 Mobile World Congress is often as interesting for the silly gadgets as it is for the mainstream announcements.

Bluetooth Gew-gaws abound at mwc

This (right) is the Selfie Stick, an extendable pole with a Bluetooth control for your phone.

The Selfie comes in two versions: a general one and one for Samsung phones where you have focus control.

There are buttons for shutter, pairing power and timer delay.

The bit which holds the phone is removable and can be attached to a small tripod so that you can stand even further away.

The manufacturer, Winners’ Sun Plastic Electronics sees it as just the thing for taking pictures over the heads of fellow concert goers.

It was at the show looking for distributors and wouldn’t be drawn on pricing. ®
