A company called Catalyst is launching a bunch of AirPods cases today. They’re cases for cases called Catalyst Case for AirPods. Creative naming, I know, but at least you’ll never forget what they’re designed to do.

The water and drop-proof cases are made of silicon and include an opening at the bottom for your Lightning cable. They come in a bunch of colors, like blue, purple, white, and glow in the dark. Why do you need a glow-in-the-dark, waterproof AirPods case? For deep sea diving at night? I don’t know, please tell me.

I’m not sure what the selling point is for these cases, but my best guess would be that it’s the included carabiner. You never know when you need a carabiner and when it might come in handy, like when you’re deep sea diving at night. The Catalyst Case for AirPods is available for preorder now for $24.99. It’s supposed to ship in May 2017.
