iLuv Creative Technology, the premier provider of the most comprehensive line of accessories for the mobile lifestyle, announces the selfy™ ecosystem, including the world’s first Apple iPhone 5/5s and Samsung GALAXY S5 cases with a built-in wireless camera shutter. This one-of-a-kind product delivers the stylish protection consumers demand together with a wireless remote shutter to allow greater flexibility for capturing perfect selfies and group photos, anytime, anywhere. In addition, the remote shutter is integrated into the back of each case so consumers always have it with them and it pairs to the iPhone 5/5s or GALAXY S5 wirelessly via Bluetooth®. No app is needed. Because of the innovative design of the case, the ecosystem includes a variety of accessories to give users even more flexibility for capturing their favorite moments.

“Over a million selfies are taken every day and most people struggle to take good ones. We realized that consumers need something stylish that would protect their iPhone 5/5s or GALAXY S5 and provide greater flexibility to take better selfies,”said William Otte, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at iLuv Creative Technology. “This is the innovation behind the selfy; one device that offers stylish, maximum protection along with an integrated but removable remote camera shutter. The selfy remote shutter is conveniently stored in the case so consumers always have it with them, but the shutter slot in the case also works with a complete ecosystem of accessories. This combination allows for the perfect photo whenever the opportunity may strike. ”

Selfy is a durable case that is available in iPhone 5/5s or GALAXY S5 designs, with a dual-layer, shock-absorbent design that protects the phone from everyday wear and tear such as drops and bumps. The innovative remote is seamlessly integrated into the case itself, sliding out when it’s time to take a quick selfie, then fitting securely back into the case after the photos have been taken. The selfy remote controls the phone’s shutter with a simple touch of a button, without relying on any third-party apps. The result is an easy, intuitive experience that allows users to capture better, more expressive images whenever the moment is right. Consumers can have their phones several feet away to fit everyone into the picture and just push the button on the remote to activate the shutter when they are ready. Images can then be uploaded to popular social media platforms or easily shared with family and friends.

The selfy ecosystem also features a variety of accessories to make capturing consumers’ favorite moments even easier. When the selfy remote is out of the case, one of four accessories easily slides in to take its place. Users can do everything from lining up the perfect group shot with the mini tripod mount, to capturing all the action on a bike or motorcycle ride with the bar mount, to using the car windshield mount to hold your phone while using the navigation function, talking on the phone "Hands Free" or taking videos or photos on the road. Accessories in the selfy ecosystem currently include:

Mini Tripod
-Perfect for stable, high-quality shots and group photos
-Flexible legs allows for set up anywhere
-Lightweight, ultra-portable size
-Works with all standard cameras

Bar Mount
-Perfect for bicycle and motorcycle videos
