Scan Toaster 'Prints' onto Bread

Sometimes two slices of toast on a plate can look pretty dull and unappetizing, but imagine if you could jazz up this boring breakfast staple with a cool picture or a sweet note to your significant other—that would be pretty neat, right?

The Scan Toaster makes that possible. The toaster, by designer Sung Bae Chang, uses hot wires that rotate within a 30 degree radius to burn the image or text of your choice onto your toast. Since this thing can print literally anything, the possibilities are endless.

The toaster is still in the design phase (it was a finalist in the 2008 Electrolux Design Lab competition), but if it ever makes it to a store near me, I'm definitely snapping one up. [via Gizmodo]
