Pizza Hut Debuts Playable DJ Pizza Box
In terms of features, pizza boxes haven't really changed all that much since, well, forever. Pizza Hut is about to fix that.
The tech-savvy pizza chain on Wednesday debuted what it's calling "the world's first playable DJ pizza box," proving that Google isn't the only company that can make cardboard cool.
Hosting a party, but don't have a fancy Bose speaker to play music? No worries: Just order a pie from Pizza Hut, and you'll have both the food and music covered.
The limited-edition box, created in collaboration with printed electronics company Novalia, connects to your laptop or smartphone via Bluetooth and plays music. Even cooler? The box features a pair of printed turntables and cardboard controls, letting you mix music like Skrillex or Tiesto on the cheap.
Now that we got you all excited about the thing, here's the bad news: These awesome pizza boxes are super limited, and only available in the U.K. If you want one, be sure to follow Pizza Hut U.K.'s Twitter account to find out which restaurants will be offering them.
Pizza Hut has experimented with lots of different technologies in recent years -- from robots and in-car ordering to subconscious menus that can read your mind. For instance, the pizza chain in May inked a deal with MasterCard to bring the SoftBank-designed humanoid robot Pepper to restaurants across Asia by the end of 2016.
