While selfie sticks didn't become popular until the turn of the 21st century, they've actually been around for much longer than that. According to Wikipedia, the world's first selfie stick can be traced back to 1925. During this, people in the United States would create their own wand-like attachments to hold their camera. Of course, these rudimentary selfie sticks were used to hold smartphones. Rather, they were used to hold traditional, vintage cameras.
The modern selfie stick -- the one used to hold smartphones -- rose to fame in 2005. During this time, Canadian entrepreneur Wayne Fromm developed a selfie stick called the Quick Pod. After releasing the Quick Pod in the United States, Fromm's new product was an instant success, thus paving the way for other selfie sticks. It wasn't long until selfie sticks were the most commonly sold smartphone accessory. And even today, you can find dozens of selfie sticks for sale.
To put the popularity of selfie sticks into perspective, Time Magazine ranked them as one of the 25 best inventions. Furthermore, The New York Post named Selfie Sticks the most controversial gift of 2014.
