If you eat and work at the same time you know the dilemma — getting food on your keyboard or touchscreen is not only super gross but also super bad for your equipment.

KFC, purveyor of fried chicken, presented a solution to that. They introduced to chicken-loving fans the “Tray Typer,” a Bluetooth-enabled keyboard that is flat, wipeable and portable. KFC users simply connected the keyboards to their smartphones and were eating and texting away.

According to the Verge, the fast-food restaurant experimented with the keyboards in Germany where they took the place of the ordinary tray liners. In fact, the KFC customers liked the “super-thin” keyboards so much that they took them when they left the restaurant.

The Tray Typer was part of a special ad campaign in Germany. No word yet on whether this experiment will be coming to the United States.

Watch the video of the Tray Typers below.
