While KFC is probably best known as a fast food chain selling fried chicken, the company is actually quite interested in technology as they have played around with various ideas in the past. Now it looks like the company is hoping to that those experiments to the next level in the form of 3D bioprinting, where in the future, it is possible that your KFC nuggets could be 3D printed.
When we think of KFC, chances are the fast food chain’s mascot Colonel Sanders pops to mind. The character of Colonel Sanders has always been portrayed as a kindly old Southern gentleman, but have you ever wondered what Colonel Sanders could look like if he was younger and was an anime character?
Have you ever wanted to perhaps break away from the internet and maybe go offline for a couple of hours, day or two, maybe?

If you’re a fan of the Colonel’s chicken then perhaps you’ll be interested in the latest product that the company has slapped its name on.

We’re pretty sure that there isn’t a relation between how someone looks and what they like to eat, but apparently that’s what Baidu and KFC in China are trying to do.
For a fast food franchise known for their fried chicken, KFC has certainly been rather enthusiastic when it comes to cooking up hi-tech ideas to attract customers. For example we’ve seen how they’ve debuted a tray which doubled up as a Bluetooth keyboard, and how they used bone conduction to deliver music their customers dining at their outlets.
Sometimes you go to a cafe or a restaurant because you want to catch up with friends over a meal or a cup of coffee, however some venues think that having music playing in the background is a good idea as it adds to the atmosphere.

There are good ideas, bad ideas, and downright great ones. The thing is, you can never really quite tell just which particular one is going to take off – at least, not until you try it.
