While KFC may not have the best food, it has the best placemats.

KFC recently released the KFC Tray Typer, the world's first grease-absorbing Bluetooth keyboard.

The device is placed on the bottom of a food tray and will connect to your phone via Bluetooth.

"The tray cover measures just 4 millimeters thick," according to Yahoo News, and "is both durable and water-resistant, can be recharged, and packs a relatively large keyboard."

Why on earth would someone need a placemat that's a keyboard?

KFC says that it will help keep a phone screen clean. KFC's food is pretty greasy, and most people don't want fried chicken grease on their screen. If a user has to text a friend, but their hands are covered in grease, then the Tray Typer acts as a perfect third-party accessory for communicating with friends while keeping the screen clean.

While this keyboard sounds really silly, it's actually an impressive piece of tech. The Verge compared the device to a keyboard from 2013 that was less than a millimeter thick.

The KFC Tray Typer is part of an advertising campaign in Germany to promote its products. KFC says that the Bluetooth keyboards were so popular that almost every customer who received a keyboard in the first week brought it home.

This isn't the first time that KFC has given away free technology as a promotion method. The company once gave away keyboard/mice/USB driver combos that looked like chicken to Japanese customers.

At this time, it's unclear if KFC will ever bring the Tray Typer to the United States.
