The Helium iPhone case is for you, iPhone camera fans

The iPhone camera has spawned an entire generation of "iPhoneographers," but often times, those fans have to use additional accessories to capture a particular shot. And there are still limitations even with those add-ons — one phone can only handle so many accessories. A company called Helium is looking to change that with its new iPhone case. The Helium Core and Helium Core+ will let iPhone photographers build a complete video and photo setup with up to 17 accessories.

Helium's aluminum shell fits over the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S, and 6S Plus. The Helium Core comes with 16 mounting points, and the Helium Core+ has 17. Those mounting points let you screw in a tripod, microphone, lens, light, or any other accessory you need for a shoot. Seventeen miiiiight be a little excessive, but hey, whatever you gotta do to get that shot.

Helium launched its Kickstarter yesterday. The 6/6S size Helium Core costs $93, and 6 Plus/6S Plus version, the Helium Core+, costs $99. The company says it'll likely ship in July, if they reach their goal of $30,000.
