Designer Toast

Categories: Fashion + Trends, Modern Decor + Objects

Designer Sung Bae Chang invented a toaster that can burn pretty much anything onto your morning slice.

The Scan Toaster connects to a PC over USB and downloads everything
from local weather conditions and the current time to the morning’s
news headlines.

Inside the toaster is a network of toasting “modules”, each heated
by a hot wire. Each module can move by 30° and, once the user selects
what they want on their toast – excluding a topping, of course – the
modules align themselves and burn the appropriate content onto the
bread.

The appliance is a finalist in design competition run by
manufacturer Electrolux  and designer Sung Bae Chang said he got the
idea whilst – you guessed it – making some toast.
