OK. It sounds like a BT remote control and a selfie stick sold as one unit. If what you really need is a remote for your smartphone, you might throw the selfie stick away.

I am so old that I am slightly puzzled by the idea of having a remote for a mobile ... Smile | :)

I certainly see the validity of the cable argument. I was told that BT has been successfully used for communication in space: Some of these satellites, after reaching their orbit, they open up and unfold numerous sensors and other "smart" units. Before launch, getting all the signal cables packed in a way guaranteeing that they can be unfolded without being tangled up is a significant problem. So, they have started to replace signal cables with Bluetooth connections between the unfolded sensors and the central intelligence in the satellite.

So I have been told, in informal forums. If it isn't true, it sure is a good lie.
