The Next Evolution in Selfies

In today’s world, selfies are a ubiquitous part of our culture.  It was even the 2013 Oxford Word of the Year.  But eventually these self-portraits going to have to step up their game.  We’re going to reach a point where bathroom mirror pics aren’t going to cut it.  F. Levent Degertekin and his team have risen to the challenge and created a new camera that takes pictures of your organs as it travels through your body.  The 1.5 millimeters device uses a combination of ultrasound and an array of 100 sensors to produce 3-D images.  It’s small enough to safely fit in arteries and blood vessels, making it an ideal tool for heart surgeons to perform their jobs more efficiently.  

Common sense would dictate that promoting this breakthrough in medical imaging would be a slam dunk.  But in today’s celebrity-obsessed world, you need to sex up your product in order to garner attention.  Here are some ideas the marketing department at Georgia Tech can work with:

Tennis champion Roger Federer and pair of kidneys

I don’t know if I can “stomach” this picture of Emma Roberts and Liam Payne (nailed it)

    Oh god no. My friends already have questionable judgement on what is appropriate and this will make it even worse. Last week a friend instagramed a xray and one of the hashtags was #cervicalscan. EWW. I am sorry but NO.

  2. What will be the internal equivalent of the pouty duck face, though? The intestinal clench?

    Oooh, FRQ, missed opportunity to mention how Liam Payne was born with a malfunctioning kidney that suddenly became functional again but that I worry about anyway. That kid. Just the best.

    All I can think about is the episode of The Magic School Bus where they went inside the human body and how gross I found it even though it was only a cartoon.

    This seems like just the kind of investment opportunity Mark Wahlberg has been waiting for ever since his plans to relocate Wahlburgers to Dubai have stalled out.
