You might think that something is brand new until you dig up a little bit in its history, only to find out that there was a track that led to it. Something like that happens, for instance, with selfies: the word, even included in dictionaries just a couple of years ago, is a new term but it designates the idea to have your own picture taken – a use far more common than we would have imagined. Let´s take a look of a few examples that show that in this case there is no limit – not even a technical one as we might imagine- when creativity happens.
