KFC Is Giving Out Chicken Buckets that Are Also Photo Printers

By FWx Editors |

What’s the problem with most fast food packaging? Clearly it’s that the packaging is not also a piece of wireless technology. KFC in Canada is taking care of that though. To celebrate the chicken chain’s 60th anniversary they designed the “Memories Bucket,” which, not only holds your eight-piece meal, but doubles as a photo printer. Presumably the actual electronics are insulated and cordoned off from any possible greasy chicken disasters. And it connects wirelessly to your phone via Bluetooth, so there’s no need to stop shoveling all those sides in your mouth to mess around with a USB cable.

This isn’t the first time KFC has dabbled in the world of chicken holding electronics in the last several months. Back in May they released a smart paper that also worked as a wireless keyboard for cellphones or tablets. Don’t start waiting in line outside KFCs in Toronto or Edmonton just yet to grab one of the printers though. They haven’t yet announced how exactly people will be able to pick one up. But a few vague messages KFC put out on their Facebook page claim more details are coming soon.

Your move McDonald’s. We’re expecting a McNugget container that doubles as an Apple Watch in time for the holidays.
