Designer Toast

mad_toasterDesigner 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.
