German KFC locations test a tray liner that's a slip-thin keyboard

KFC Tray Typer connects to your phone while you’re eating.

As part of an advertising campaign in Germany, KFC replaced its paper slip with a high-tech keyboard. This keyboard connects to your phone via Bluetooth and lets you type and reply to messages while you have sticky fingers. This prevents any of the grease from the food smearing your screen while you text, type and post.

The upper part of the keyboard is made up of KFC logos and promotion. On the lower half, you’ll find a fully crafted keyboard of the kind you’re used to seeing at your desk. By pressing the on/off switch to the side and holding for two seconds, the keyboard will turn on. From there, all you have to do is connect with the Bluetooth option and you’re ready to message your friends while you eat.
