My 2 Cents:  Now this is for you morning people that want to bring a little more excitement to breakfast.  I really think that this is a really cool idea and would love to see this on in action ;O)

Many things have appeared on toast: Marmite, Vegemite, jam and even Cylons. Now a designer’s invented a toaster that can burn pretty much anything onto your morning slice, including the news.

The Scan Toaster: toasts news, weather and pictures onto your bread

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
