Is it possible for a toaster to be this much fun?
A kitchen gadget from Inseq Design creative talent. Made of aluminum and plastics, Zuse is a toaster equipped with optical sensor which activates digital toasting once it senses the presence of bread. Inspired by the early matrix printers and designed to work as a traditional print maker, it burns line-by-line black and white pictures with 12 by 12 pixel resolution into the toast. Comes with a memory chip which stores multiple images. (Pics)
This is the lovely looking Glide concept toaster, built from ceramic, by UK designer George Watson. OK, apart from the obvious drawback of being able to toast only one slice of bread at a time, this really is something different. It just scooped the MACEF Design Award and really does put a new twist on the tried and trusted bread burner.
