If you are like many people, you may start your morning with a cup of coffee and a piece of toast. While you are enjoying your breakfast you may listen to the weather forecast, write a note to leave on the table asking for someone to meet you later, and or doodle pictures on a pad. What if your toast could do all that for you? I know what you are thinking, what is she saying, surely that was a typing error. No my technology hungry readers, it is not! There is a new cool mini toaster that can do all of those things I just described for your morning routine, leaving you to sip your cup of Joe!
The Scan Toaster, designed by South Korean designer Sung Bae Chang for the Electrolux Design Lab 2008 competition, can print the news, weather forecasts and photos directly onto the bread. The concept is simple — just plug the toaster into a free USB port, place the bread, and the software will burn whatever it is you want.
It is simple, just press several botton: news or weather…”I got the idea from looking at my scanner and printer beside my computer,” explains Scan Toaster’s creator, Sung Bae Chang, a design student at Sejong University in South Korea. “I was chatting with my friends and suddenly thought, ‘How about scanning to a piece of toasting bread?’ and then started to brainstorm the idea.”
What a great idea, I can’t wait for breakfast, how about you? Who knew bread could be such fun?
