Otterbox has made a name for its self by offering the biggest and bulkiest iPhone cases imaginable, but with its latest product all that rubbery protection comes with a ton of utility.

The new Universe case system is basically the Swiss Army Knife of iPhone cases. While safeguarding your iPhone from heavy damage, the new Otterbox case also allows users to clip on multiple accessories at a time.

All you have to do is slide out one of two plastic slots on the back and you can add a battery pack, selfie stick, Square Reader, Bluetooth speakers and much more.

Those accessories don’t come included with the case though, so you’ll have to buy them on top of the $50 for the case. Otterbox already has a bunch of modules you can add, such as a wallet attachment, tripods, Olloclip 4-in-1 lens, a Square Reader, a thermal imaging camera and speakers.

Currently the case is only available for the iPhone 6/6s and iPhone 6 Plus/6s Plus. More modules are expected to be added to the lineup in the future so you can keep expanding your iPhone’s capabilities. It’s nothing like Google’s long awaited Project Ara, but it’s the closet you can get to it with the iPhone for now.
