It seems toasters have become the source of inspiration for many inventors these days. I don’t know why that is, but maybe it’s a way to make sure they get their nutrition in the morning before their busy schedule starts. Not too long ago, our toasters were a piece of hollow technology with one simple purpose – to gently scorch our bread and give it a little bit of flavor. Recently our toasters have become modern technology masterpieces with touchscreen displays and lord knows what. Don’t get me wrong, it’s all cool, especially when innovators are taking the creative path towards making the perfect toast. One of the more advanced toasters I have seen is the toast printer. It’s a rather delicious piece of technology that could very well deliver your morning news as well.
Alright, maybe that was a little bit too optimistic. However, the toast printer actually prints letters (by the looks of it) on your toast. It’s something that should be quite entertaining for the children in your home, and possibly even you as well. This toast printer looks and feels very much like an ink-jet printer and behaves pretty much the same way. All you have to do is stack the fresh bread at the top and let them feed into the toast printer. When they’re done, they will drop down to the base of the printer all ready to be served.
The whole concept design and realization was completed by Othmar Muhlebach, and it won second prize at the Berner Design Award back in 2009. If you are interested in seeing how this little badboy came to life, just hop on over to Othmar’s website. There are plenty of pictures and lots of in-depth information about this toast printer that will probably inspire you to get one. I doubt there are any for sale though, but this thing is definitely worth looking into. It has never been more fun to toast your bread in the morning. This toast printer will definitely be on my mind this morning when I sit down to have myself some breakfast.
