A design student in the US has created a hyper-efficient way to package and carry fast food. His folding contraption comes with separate compartments for a burger, hot chips and soft drink. The whole meal can then be carried one-handed. A cure for cancer can wait.
It might not look like much, but Seulbi Kim's Togo Burger has the potential to solve one of the biggest first-world problems of the 21st century (i.e. -- why can't I hold my takeaway bag and soft drink in the same hand?) The ingeniously simple cardboard fold-up caddy ensures you'll never have to forgo the use of your phone when carrying a full compliment of McDonald's again.
The Togo Burger's handles fold upwards and lock together forming a snug enclosure for your deep-fried goodies. The contraption also comes with sleeves for burgers and fries and a small insert for a straw. The soft drink, meanwhile, hangs out of from the bottom. According to Kim, the creation reduces waste by 50 percent compared to traditional fast food carriers.
One other advantage is that the limited storage space effectively forces you to buy a smaller meal size. Although what with this being the US, we suspect a 'jumbo edition' is already in pre-production. Click on the infographic below to read up on the hard science behind this fascinating creation:
