I know that I definitely love ordering pizza and watching a movie or football with it and I’m sure most of the people reading this do too – at least judging by our pizza competition. Pizza Hut have decided to cash in on that by releasing this genius invention: a pizza box that also works as a projector for your smartphone.
It’s called the Blockbuster Box (yeah, I get that reference too and yes I feel old because of it) and it works due to a special pizza tray in the box. This is the part of the box that normally prevents your pizza from touching the sides of it and this time it comes with a special lens that you can insert into the side of the box once you’ve punched out a perforated hole. Then you place your smartphone into the box and whack on your favourite movie and it’s projected perfectly onto the nearest wall. Completely sick.
Even better than this, Pizza Hut are also printing a QR code on the side of the box so that you can download a free movie if you don’t have Netflix or another way to stream a movie on your phone. I’m not sure how good these are going to be but I suppose beggars can’t be choosers.
There’s four different option of box for whatever you’re in the mood for: Fully Loaded box for action movies, Slice Night for scary movies, Hot & Ready for your romance, and Anchovy Armageddon for your sci-fi fans. I guess there’s some chance you might get a good movie there, but I’m thinking you’re probably just gonna end up with something like Sharknado.
I suppose the only downer about this is that you won’t be able to eat your pizza out of the box whilst watching the movie – which is a great pastime – but the whole idea of it in action is probably worth foregoing that simple pleasure at least once to check it out. Oh wait, you can only get the Blockbuster Box in Hong Kong actually.
Here’s a video of it in action though so you can salivate over more food and food products that other countries get that you can’t, like the Double Down King in Korea.
