Toasteroid Prints Custom Images On Your Bread

toasteroid-3

We’ve seen toasters that can print a specific image onto your toast by using a custom shaped heating element. Heck, just last month we wrote about a Death Star Toaster that printed a TIE Fighter on your bread. The thing about these is that the image is fixed, and will always print the same thing. Toasteroid however is a “smart” toaster that connects to your smartphone through Bluetooth and is able to print just about anything by using a “high density micro-filament heating system”, a kind of dot matrix heating element. The app lets you create your image, and upload it to the toaster, which then just browns your bread and brands it with your creation. Precise browning control is a feature, as is optional synchronization to a weather forecast service that can print its output directly on your bread. The possibilities are endless and if you have children or loved ones (and who doesn’t), consider how fun you could make their mornings by printing custom notes for them on their food. Prices start at $79 for Early Birds, and goes up to $85 afterwards.

A Death Star Toaster

death-star-toaster-2

Has it been long enough since we posted about Star Wars merchandise? No? Well, too bad because look at this. It’s a toaster shaped like the Death Star. And (and!) it brands a TIE fighter on your bread while it toasts. There’s really not much more to say about it, I mean, it’s a toaster for crying out loud. But for those die-hard fans out there, it’s a fun, officially-licensed product that you can own for all of £49.99 (about $65USD). It’s on pre-order for the moment, with shipment in October.

The Selfie Toaster Is A Thing That Exists

hm-selfie-toaster-

Taking narcissism to a whole new level, the Selfie Toaster makes it possible to make your breakfast in your own likeness. It achieves its results by using metal plates with your likeness cut out; when the toaster operates, the heat will only brown the parts of the bread that make up your face. When you order the thing, it will be shipped with a demo plate so you can see how it works. You’ll then have to go on the company’s website and upload a picture of yours and after a two week wait, you’ll be all set to delight yourself and your possible guests with bread adorned with your beautiful portrait. Best part is that it’s super inexpensive, at $39 from Hammacher Schlemmer.

This Toaster Is A Fully Functional Nintendo Console

nintendo-toaster

Modding consoles to fit into formats never intended by their initial manufacturers is nothing new, but Jarno Kotavuopio’s Nintendo Toaster is a thing of beauty and worth a quick mention. Yes, it’s fully functional and obviously you turn the console on by pressing the lever. Even the controller is modded with some LEDs, and he made cartridge covers that look like actual toast!

If you’re looking to buy this mod, or convince Jarno to make you one, it appears he “doesn’t have time” for that. Sadly.

Your Soft Tortillas Can Now Grow Up To Be Hard Tacos

Screen Shot 2015-01-20 at 3.04.00 PM

Sometimes you’re in the mood of a nice soft wrap, while other times you miss the crunch of a taco. You could buy both soft tortillas and hard tacos and get your fix whenever you want. Or you could get this Taco Shell Toaster. It’ll accept corn or flour tortillas and shape them into the perfect taco shape thanks to its taco-forming cage. It makes two at once, and the 750W element should have them toasted in no time. Better yet, this toaster is just $30.

Domo Toaster Adds A Bit Of Internet Culture To Your Morning Toast

Screen Shot 2013-04-03 at 11.36.34 PM

Domo-kun is the official mascot of Japan’s NHK television station. But on the Internet, it’s the kitten-chasing monster that provokes God into making a victim every time you masturbate. Please… think of the kittens.

And now you can buy a toaster with the mascot imprinted on the side. And better yet, burnt right into your toast. And the best part? You don’t have to import anything from Japan: the Domo Toaster is available for $49 at Urban Outfitters.
