For many consumers sitting down for dinner now includes an extra guest: their smartphone. But sometimes the meal can get a bit messy. To keep your grubby fingers off your pristine mobile device, Kentucky Fried Chicken has created the Tray Typer; a bluetooth keyboard that keeps you connected even with the greasiest of fingers.

The Verge reports that the keyboard, which replaces the traditional paper liners found on fast food trays, is part of the company’s latest advertising campaign in Germany.

The rechargeable high-tech tray liner is reportedly durable enough to be wiped down and used over and over at the restaurants.

However, the launch of the limited-time gimmick was so popular, a representative for the advertising company that made the product tells The Verge, that each one that was handed out during the initial campaign ended up going home with customers.
