The struggle is real for McDonald’s. With the fast food giant finding it increasingly tough to compete with its slightly more wholesome (less un-wholesome?) rivals, the company’s turning to technology to bring hordes of soon-to-be-obese-probably kids through its doors again.

We’re not sure which Galaxy model will hit the tables, but it doesn’t sound like they’ll do anything out of the ordinary, apart from doubling up as high-tech napkins to wipe grease onto. Customers will be able to browse the web, fiddle with social media apps and play a bunch of games. Futuristic! [Verge]
