The Internet Escape Pod hasn't sold out... yet

KFC has launched lots of gadgets in the past, and we've routinely covered them. But this past week, the fried chicken company introduced a different kind of gadget: a massive Faraday cage. The Internet Escape Pod, as KFC calls it, features a drumstick-shaped door handle with a massive Colonel Sanders atop it. The dome is constructed out of steel and stainless steel mesh, a high-density foam, and enamel paint. It weighs eight pounds. Only one model exists, however, so if you want it, you have to pay $10,000.

How badly do you need to escape from the internet? Could you just put your phone in a box under your bed and walk away, or do you need a $10,000 KFC-branded tent with a chicken leg for a handle? I'm not going to judge you for maybe wanting this, but yeah, I think you can probably cut yourself off from the internet for free.
