What do you think of the new selfie hat from Acer?

What do you think of the new selfie hat from Acer?

Acer has joined up with designer Christian Cowan-Sanluis to create something that is both spectacular and useful. It is spectacular because it is massive and looks like something that would be worn on Ladies Day at Royal Ascot. But it is useful because it comes with a built in Acer Iconia A1-840 tablet that is perfectly placed for the wearer to take some interesting selfies without having to hold the device in one hand and trying to press the button with the other, it’s all a balancing act, that with this selfie hat is no longer a necessity.

The hat has been designed in a sort of sombrero style as found on a holidays to Spain and Mexico. So its basically the same shape and size all the way around, which allows the user to turn the hat throughout a complete 360 degrees in order to get the right angle or move the Acer Iconia A1-840 tablet out of the way. Naturally, we are not expecting to find any these hats in the high street, but it is a cool idea none the less. However, if you could buy one of these Acer Selfie Hats would you buy it or more to the point how much would you be willing to pay for it?

Acer Iconia in the UK January 2011

The brilliant looking twin screened Acer Iconia; yes, this laptop has no physical keyboard, but does come with a virtual keyboard just like what you get on a smart phone such as the iPhone. It is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but imagine no keys, no food and germs under the keys, sounds great to me!

This double fourteen inch laptop, will be going on sale next month, this is great as initially it was believed that only Spain would be getting the machine in January, the only issue of course is going to be the price, £1,500 is little steep for many consumers!

Two fourteen inch glossy touch screens offering multi touch technology with a resolution of 1366 × 768 pixels, no standard keyboard, but it comes with a virtual keyboard on the secondary screen.
