A Daventry firm has won the UK distribution rights for a new piece of mobile technology which has taken the US by storm.

Clarity Vision Group will be distributing the Selfy, an innovative accessory for iPhone, Galaxy and iPads.

The mobile accessory allows photos and videos to be taken remotely.

The Selfy is manufactured by iLuv and will be sold initially through Amazon and Dixons online. The CEO of Clarity Vision, David Stobart, said the company was proud to be part of the Selfy’s launch into the UK market.

He said: “At Clarity Vision we pride ourselves on our ability to source competitively priced and pioneering products from abroad.

“We are constantly working towards further enhancing our catalogue of successful brands and bringing new innovations to the UK market.

“The Selfy is likely to become a best seller with British consumers because it offers total flexibility of use and opens up more opportunities for photo backdrops and group shots.

“We’re delighted to partner iLuv in this project and look forward to a long, successful working relationship.”

Selfy takes the form of a protective case, with fashion and practicality in mind, and pairs with the mobile phone or tablet. It has a slide-out remote control integrated into the back of the case which can be easily taken out when it’s time to take a quick selfie, photo or video, and slides back in just as easily.

It is available for iPhone 5, 5s and 6, the Galaxy S5 and iPad Air/Mini.

The case comes with a built-in wireless camera shutter which pairs to the device via Bluetooth so no special apps need to be downloaded.
