WATCH: Game console claims it can keep your fried chicken warm
It sounds like a gag but it’s not: a fried chicken fast-food chain is about to launch its first gaming console, in partnership with a Taiwanese hardware manufacturer. The console will feature a new compartment designed to keep crispy chicken warm.
Kentucky Fried Chicken began talking about this project last spring, and it has been intriguing people ever since. It has now become a reality through a partnership with Cooler Master.
Together, they have developed a customized casing and a cooling system. The heat produced by the console components is funneled to the chicken chamber to keep the food warm, for players to enjoy between rounds of play.
The machine is shaped like a bucket. Inside, the console houses an Intel Nuc 9 Extreme Compute Element kit, a graphics card from Asus and two 1TB BarraCuda SSDs from Seagate. The console is compatible with 4K games and capable of 240 frames per second.
A crazy concept or a future hit among gamers? No marketing date has been announced yet. JB
