Apparently, not everyone is super excited about selfie sticks.
The South Korean government is threatening selfie stick retailers with fines of up to $27K and jail time over some of the group selfie products they’re selling, and it’s all because of electromagnetic radiation.
Apparently, the blue tooth enabled ones, like the one Keri discussed in her post, have not been vigorously tested and the government considers them “frequency-emitting communications equipment”.
While users of the sticks are off the hook for any sort of recourse, retailers could receive upwards of $27k in fines.
I’m not so sure blue tooth devices can be dangerous. What do you think?
