Internet-connected toaster burns news into bread


Oh my. It’s this kind of stuff that makes it all worthwhile. I present to you an idea for a toaster that hooks up to your computer and can burn just about anything you throw at it onto the bread you drop into the slots – weather, news, photos – your call.

The Scan Toaster is the brainchild of designer Sung Bae Chang and is currently a finalist in the 2008 Electrolux Design Lab competition. I don’t ask for much but please, oh please, make this real some day. Check out more photos on Flickr.
