This Pizza Hut box doubles as a smartphone movie projector
2 June 2015 1:42 AM, PDT
Saturday night takeaways just got more exciting thanks to a new pilot scheme from Pizza Hut that takes the concept of dinner and a movie to new heights.
The restaurant chain is delivering its pizzas in boxes that can be converted into a movie projector for smartphones as part of a trial in Hong Kong.
The Blockbuster Boxes come with a lens and phone stand, taking on the form of a projector when the user inserts the lens into a perforated hole in the cardboard and puts their handset in position.
Each box includes a code that customers can scan to access a Pizza Hut-made movie, but can be used to project any content from a smartphone.
The Blockbuster Boxes were created in conjunction with advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather Hk, but Pizza Hut is yet to confirm whether it plans to deliver a slice of movie action with its pizzas in other territories. »
