Moon is an add-on flash for your selfies

If you’re disappointed by your selfies, and your looks aren’t to blame, maybe Moon can help.

It’s a simple clip-on front-facing flash. Attach it to your smartphone, and it’ll shine a light on you and your pals. That means you can snap away in well-lit conditions, and see you and your friends in all your glory.

Smartphone makers have cottoned on to the fact that selfies are quite popular, so plenty of handsets feature front-facing flashes. The iPhone 6S‘s screen even doubles as a flash for selfies. But if yours doesn’t, Moon could just fix your selfies.

It’s powered by a rechargeable battery, and you juice it up via a microUSB cable. Once charged, it will last one to two days of “average selfie use”, though what that is is anyone’s guess. It will ship with custom brightness options, so you can adjust the light depending on your surroundings.

There’s no word on how it clips onto your phone, but we’re guessing it’s magnetised. It comes in black, white and red, and looks like it could be a boon for selfie-lovers in dingy bars.

It’s only just gone live on Kickstarter and has already raised over $7,000 of a $10,000 goal. It costs $29 (£19) with the early bird, and will ship in April.
