London: Are you tired of posting those drab still selfies on your Facebook or Instagram account? A new form of video selfie called the 'Donut selfie' could now help you present some cool shots.

The technique, created by an ex-Microsoft employee Karen Cheng from California, involves taking various panoramic video shots using the phone camera.
