Over the years some of the Kickstarter appeals we have brought you have been groundbreaking in their design, and industry changing in their uses. The Toasteroid is probably neither of those, but what it will do is put a smile on your face, and get your day off to a great start.
Breakfast Will Never Be The Same Again
Basically the Toasteroid comes with an accompanying app, and by using it on your smart phone you can use an emoji, type some text, or even design something yourself. You also have the option to link it to a weather service so first thing on a morning you toast tells you the forecast for the day ahead!
Whatever you chose is uploaded directly to the toaster, and then toasted on to the bread at a browning level that suits.
The team which are based in Brooklyn, New York have created a aesthetically pleasing curved die-cast aluminium device that uses a high-density micro-filament heating system which spreads heat evenly so you don't end up with a half toast / half bread combination.
And unlike some Kickstarter appeals you won’t have to break the bank to get your hands on one – early backers can pick up a Toasteroid Mini for less than £45. As of writing this (which is 11 days after the appeal started) it has already been backed two thirds of way already, and it still have more than 30 days to go, so everything is looking positive.
Oh and you can actually just make normal toast if you wish……but where’s the fun in that?!
