KFC has long been known for thinking outside the box. After all, how else can one explain the ingenuity behind items like fried chicken pizza and the iconic — and heart attack inducing — Double Down Dog.

But KFC is pushing things even farther, only this time it’s tapping into the world of technology. In celebration of the chain’s 60th year in Canada, KFC put some of its best research scientists to work. After days spent holed up in a lab, running on little to no sleep, they finally emerged with a product that seamlessly blends cutting edge technology with their amazing chicken.

Behold, the Memories Bucket.

Apparently, all one has to do is link up their smartphone with a KFC Memories Bucket whereupon it’ll quickly print up a photo of your choosing.

While there’s no word if this crafty little creation will ever be available for mainstream use, it sure represents an interesting if not peculiar way to celebrate 60 years of chicken.

Lastly, it’s worth pointing out that both KFC and Pizza Hut are owned by the same company — Yum! Brands. Why is this relevant, you might wonder? Well it wasn’t all that long ago that Pizza Hut introduced us to a pizza box capable of turning into a movie projector.

So at long last, the dream of living in a world where our TVs are replaced by pizza boxes and our printers are replaced by buckets of chicken has become a reality.

It’s a marvelous time to be alive.

And now the pressure is on Taco Bell, yet another Yum! Brands-owned company, to step up to the plate with a wild invention all their own.
