In a photo taken on November 26, 2014 a couple use a 'selfie stick' to take a photo before the Gyeongbokgung palace in central Seoul. In South Korea anyone selling an unregistered bluetooth-enabled selfie stick could face a 27,000 US dollar fine or up to three years in prison, the Science Ministry announced last week. The focus of the ministerial crackdown are those models that come with bluetooth technology, allowing the user to release the smartphone shutter remotely, rather than using a timer. As such they have to be tested and certified to ensure they don't pose a disruption to other devices using the same radio frequency.
