Love your selfie stick but feel embarrassed when you use it? One Japanese man who goes by the name Mansun has solved your problem. And the out-of-the-box solution looks like this.

The concept is so simple, it’s a wonder no one had thought of it before. Why embarrass yourself in front of strangers just to get the perfect Facebook profile picture?  

Mansun has no plans to mass produce his brilliant product himself, so you’ll have to make your own.  Luckily, he provided detailed pictures of his process along with the helpful blueprint above.

First you’ll need a slightly altered selfie stick…

…and a slightly altered shirt…

…and voila! You’re ready to go.

Finally, there’s a way to takes great selfies inconspicuously.
