Toast Scanner Gadget - Burn News onto bread

The Scan Toaster is the latest cool gadget that toasts news, weather and pictures onto your cool is that!

So instead of jam on your toast, you can now thanks to this gadget have pretty much anything you want on your morning slice, including the news.

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. No plans to manufacture the toaster on a mass scale have popped up yet!
