Breakfast news

A colleague blogged about this tonight, and it's weird enough for me to steal for myself.

This article from The Register describes a toaster that’s able to burn pretty much anything onto your morning slice, including the news. Called the Scan Toaster, it connects to a PC over USB and downloads everything from local weather conditions and the current time to the morning’s news headlines which it then toasts onto your bread.

Big question coming up: why??

So bizarre...yet I find myself really wanting one!!!!!

Donna said...

The news or the weather? On your toast? Wow, The mind boggles on why anyone would want to do that.

haha, that's so neat! i have no doubt someone will find a way to put paid advertising on toast.

oh, i did a search online for others and stumbled across a cylon toaster that was specifically made for battlestar gallactica for Comic-Con this past July. cool stuff!

Nothing like "reading your toast" in the morning. "Honey, where's the morning paper"... "Oh I'm sorry, I ate it for breakfast!"
