Hungry punters will be glad to see KFC is moving with the time. The fried chicken chain lined its serving trays with disposable Bluetooth keyboards for a marketing stunt.
The idea behind it is the tray syncs up to your smartphone, allowing you tap away to messages mid-meal without getting greasy fingerprints all over your phone screen.
Nicknamed the “Tray Typer”, the super-slim Bluetooth keyboard is thin and light enough that it can actually be folded over.
And according to Serviceplan – the company behind the idea – the Tray Typers have been so popular that every single one has been taken home.
Well, it beats a grease-absorbing scrap of paper any day, doesn’t it?
Sadly, the techy treat was only available at KFC Germany and the whole campaign only ran for a week.
Although, we can certainly foresee a couple of problems with KFC’s plan – what happens if your phone times out and you need to restart the screen? Or you need to swap apps because you’ve got a WhatsApp message instead of an email?
Still, props to KFC for trying to make the fried chicken dining experience a little more futuristic. We’d go so far as to say it’s finger clickin’ good.
