For celebratiing its 50th anniversary Burger King in Puerto Rico created a hands-free Whopper holder for people on-the-go using 3D printing.
50 of these 3D printed hands-free Whopper holder were handed out to loyal BK fans. The Whopper holder can be worn around the neck so wearer has both hands free for other tasks, such as playing guitar, dancing, cycling, or walking in the street with 7 dogs...
Watch below this brilliant Burger King's promotional video, apparently people are pretty creative with how and where to use this hands-free Whopper holder - just wondering how they finish the remaining 1/3 of the whopper...
The 3D printing process:
"The video featuring a 'hands-free' Whopper Sandwich holder was produced by an agency in Puerto Rico to celebrate the brand and the iconic Whopper Sandwich in a humorous way. However, the product depicted in the spot was not produced, or distributed to guests as some reports indicate," reads the short statement from Burger King to CNBC.
Burger King officials declined further comment on the campaign including whether the prototype was indeed made on a 3-D printer or if the schematics would be released to the public.
The ads were created by DLC/Ogilvy & Mather, but neither Burger King nor Ogilvy would comment on the matter to CNBC.

I volunteer some of my time to help nonprofits with their websites. I worked in IT for 23 years and was a professional webmaster too. I've helped eight organizations so far. Do you have any interest in getting a new website for free? I just helped an animal shelter and their site is really nice now. I helped a women's center before that. Sincerely, Jessica Graham

Wow, that's very lame. Just because it can be done doesn't mean it's a good idea.
