  【龙腾评论】男子30年前就申请了自拍神器的专利,但是他无法从现在的销售中获得一分钱 知乎精选 第1张

  They have become one of the most irritatingaccessories carried by tourists in recent years, but it appears the selfiestick has been a nuisance for three decades.

  最近几年游客们携带的最恼人的东西之一就是这个东西了,但是貌似这个东西30年前就有了。

  Hiroshi Ueda, a photographer who worked asan engineer for camera company Minolta, claims that he first invented theselfie stick in the 1980s.

  现在身为摄影师的HiroshiUeda之前是美能达相机公司的一名工程师,他说是他在1980年代的时候发明了这种东西。

  He said he came up with the idea afterstruggling to get pictures of himself and his wife together while they were inEurope.

  他说和妻子去欧洲旅游时由于要合拍照片,而发明了这个东西。

  After having his camera stolen by a child he asked to take their picture in theLouvre Museum in Paris, he dreamed up a solution - an extendable stick with atripod screw at the end.

  在巴黎卢浮宫里要求一个孩子为他们拍照,但是相机被这孩子偷走了,所以他就想出了这个解决办法——一个可伸长的棒子,末端再放一个三脚架。

  The 'extender stick', as he called it, was designed for use with new compactcameras that were being developed at the time.

  他称这个自拍神器为“延长棒”,在设计上是和当时饿袖珍相机一起使用的。

  He added a mirror to the front of the camera so that photographers could seeexactly what they were doing.

  他还在相机前面安装了一面镜子,这样拍摄者就能看清自己的一切举动了。

  Despite being patented in 1983, theextender stick failed to become a success - mainly due to the poor imagequality it captured.

  尽管在1983年就申请了专利,但是当时并没有流行开来——主要原因可能是这样拍出来的画质非常差。

  Some 30 years later selfie sticks are nowhugely popular - used by narcissists and celebrities everywhere to captureimages of themselves in their surroundings.

  30年后的今天,自拍神器变得非常流行,使用者包括了自恋狂和名人。

  They have become such a menace that manytourist venues, museums, concert venues and stadiums have banned them.

  但是由于很多人在使用,所以也成为了一种威胁,很多旅游景点,博物馆,音乐会举办地点和体育场馆都禁止使用这种东西。

  Perhaps ironically, Apple - the companythat could be blamed for kickstarting the selfie phenomenon by putting a cameraon the front of its phones in the first place - has also banned them from itsnext conference.

  讽刺的是,苹果也禁止在自己的下一届大会中使用这种东西,而最先兴起自拍现象的可能就是苹果公司,因为是苹果公司首先在手机前面安装了摄像头。

  Modern versions of the extender stick allow a smartphone to be held aloft anduse a remote trigger to take the photograph or video.

  现代版的自拍神器可以让智能手机漂浮在空中,并使用一个远程的触发器来进行拍照或摄像。

  Mr Ueda's patentran out in 2003, however, so he has not benefited from the recent boom.

  Ueda先生的专利在2003年过期了,所以他没能从现在的自拍神器繁荣中获得任何好处。
