Selfies usually can only capture a shot at a distance that's the length of your arm. But what if a hand gesture could serve as a remote for your smartphone's camera?

PointGrab's new CamMe smartphone app utilizes gesture control to allow users to snap a selfie. Make your hand into a fist, and a remote counts down before taking a picture. The app released new features Monday, like "Photo Booth", that takes a series of photos just like a classic photo booth. There are also goofy photo cutouts, in case you wanted to see yourself as a mermaid.

The app can also serve as a way to get everyone in the picture, instead of asking a friend to stay behind the camera.

CamMe's marketing director, Azital Rabani, says people shouldn't have to buy an accessory. Gesture control should be integrated into devices.
