The world’s first selfie stick was invented by a Japanese man in the 1980s


The first ever selfie stick was invented by a Japanese man in the 1980s. Hiroshi Ueda, from Osaka, was the mastermind behind the idea – which has now taken the world by storm.

Ueda came up with the idea after he saw a man trying to take a photo of himself with a long pole. He thought there must be a better way to do it, and so the selfie stick was born.

The stick allowed people to take photos of themselves from a distance, without having to ask someone else to take the photo for them. It was a game-changer for selfie-lovers everywhere.

Selfie sticks became increasingly popular in the 2000s, as digital cameras became more commonplace. And in 2014, the selfie stick really took off, thanks to the rise of smartphone cameras.

Nowadays, there are all sorts of different selfie sticks available, from simple and cheap ones to more expensive and feature-packed versions. And there’s even a selfie stick with a built-in camera, for those who want to take things to the next level.

So, next time you take a selfie, spare a thought for Hiroshi Ueda – the man who made it all possible.
