KFC has long been at the forefront of incorporating unnecessary technology into their restaurants for the sake of attention online. The latest entry in this category is the KFC Watt A Box, a “5-in-1 Meal Box” that can wirelessly charge smartphones in addition to its chicken-holding functionality.
Now for the bad news: If you’re reading this outside of India, your dreams of being able to give a quick charge to your phone while you enjoy KFC delicacies are for now still dreams, as the KFC Watt A Box is a KFC India joint for now. But the good news, kind of, is that it reportedly doesn’t actually charge phones very well—perhaps when the technology is perfected it will get a wider, global release.
Until then, you can either head to your nearest KFC India location to try the KFC Watt A Box for yourself, or get a vicarious charge out of the promotional video below. And if anyone from the Whataburger corporate office is reading this: I would consider a lawsuit.
