Selfie sticks receive a lot of hate for being annoying instruments of narcissism. They’re inconvinient to carry around and can make you look just plain silly.

A brilliant new selfie stick may have solved the device’s worst problems though with a cleverly designed iPhone case that hides a telescoping 28-inch long selfie stick in the back. It looks like something Data from The Goonies would invent. And for that reason alone, I love it.

Stikbox is launching as a Kickstarter project, so don’t get your hopes up quite yet that this thing will actually make it out into the real world. If you’d like to support the campaign though, $29 will get you an early production unit in the color of your choice. Units are estimated to ship by May 2016, with plans to hit retail stores later this year priced around $44.
