Before you click on the next article warning that the age of Macbook selfie sticks has dawned on us overnight, relax - the Macbook selfie stick is not a thing!

A group of artists created a project based on the contraption, uploading a series of images of people holding an extra large, though apparently sturdy, selfie stick with a Macbook poised ludicrously on the end to macbookselfiestick.com

The photos were taken around New York City by the Macbook stick’s creators, Moises, John Yuyi and Tom Galle, and are accompanied by some puzzled looks from passers-by.
