Introducing The 'Togo Burger': A Suitcase For Your Fast Food

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:

    Unlike the other 'innovations' that have been on lifehacker lately in this area (namely, the linked Burger King and KFC ones) this is actually kinda cool.

    So many stories about junk food. Does anyone eat regular food any more?

    Nah, fries just don't taste the same unless you have to fish them out of the bag because the minimum wage flunkie put them in upside down.

      Bag chips are the best!

        Half the taste comes from the knowing surprise of that one extra chip in the greasy bag. The rest is salt.

    If you have a saucy burger, all the juice will drip out one side

      It's for this very reason that I always ask for minimum tomato sauce and mayo on my burgers. I swear sometimes you get more sauce than you get actual burger if you don't say anything -_-

        I feel exactly the opposite. If my burger doesn't have enough sauce/mayo then it's too dry and they may as well have punched me in the face.

    A cure for cancer can wait.

    Yes, now we need to focus on Diabetes... well, even more...

    Yes I'm sure for the fat and pathetic with no willpower or demonstrable physical activity, this will be quite the godsend of beta lifehacking.
