The Giga-Selfie takes the ‘selfie game’ to extremes but there’s a catch

…you have to go to Australia to take one.

Tourism Australia has set up ‘Giga platforms’ placed in stunning spots. If you’ve got the associated app, you can then hop onto them and capture a snap taken by a far off camera, that grabs high resolution, expansive shots.

From there, you can zoom in to your heart’s content, going from the macro-wonder to the micro joy of your own grinning face.

This is definitely an idea I can see other countries stealing… I mean ‘being inspired by.’
