Pizza Hut Projector is Giving Us Serious Pizza Box Envy

Hong Kong currently has a monopoly on the best darn pizza box in the entire world.

And once you discover that the box doubles as a movie projector, you will forgive what is only slightly a bit of hyperbole.

The Verge’s Dante D’Orazio reports on a clever use of pizza boxes that has us wanting to take a trip to Hong Kong simply for the pizza.

It’s like a happy meal for adults, bringing a nifty toy to those who have hankering for the usual fast food meal.

Essentially some boxes used by Pizza Hut in Hong Kong come with a lens that fits into a provided hole in the box. Using a bar code on the same box, ravenous eaters can turn their smartphones into a means to an inexpensive movie projector.

YouTube has a breakdown of the innovation:

D’Orazio explains that the provided QR code offers one of four selections for the “Blockbuster Box.”

According to The Verge, home audiences will get provided downloads in the form of either horror, science-fiction, action or romantic fare. But there is a catch, because the reporter is a bit cautious when it comes to the quality of the images.

Still, we say this is the best thing to come to pizza since they found a way to start stuffing cheese into the crust.

Business Insider confirms the bad news that this clever ploy is limited, for the moment, to outlets in Hong Kong.

So you will have to make do with your Netflix account and big screen television for the moment, which doesn’t seem nearly as fun despite the obvious advantages of pristine images and crystal clear sound.

In any case, we will be on the couch pouting until our pizza order comes with an actual projector.
