If you want to know more about the robot itself or a little bit more on making one, head over to Bre Pettis’ article on that matter…otherwise, enjoy!
“The toaster is often overlooked in terms of sleek style, but the Bodum Bistro Toaster makes a convincing case. Exclusive to Crate and Barrel, the 2 slice brushed chrome toaster has a built-in warming rack and removable crumb tray—which is great because have you ever looked inside your current toaster. Nasty.” (Thx Cool Material)
Created with an aesthetic inspired by Nintendo’s Wii gaming console, designer Ivo Vos has created a toaster that stands on a 42° angle and exudes 5.2N of force. What does this mean? It can hurl your nicely browned toast across the room, that’s what! Go long, and eat on! (Thx RegHardware)
So this new device is wild! The basic principle is, it connects to the Internet which allows it to grab information on the fly, and whatever you like can be burned onto toast. Imagine waking up every morning, having the news headlines from your area inscribed on your toast, and then just eating the news. If I could eat the LA Times…well…actually I don’t know where I was going with that.
A black, ominous toaster with the famous logo, and it burns an image of Darth Vader’s helmet in every piece of toast you put through it. For $54.99, you can eat like like your father.
