Soon You’ll Be Able to Buy a Toaster That Will Put The Weather Report on Your Food
If you’ve ever wanted to find out the weather forecast by looking down at a piece of toast instead of doing the arduous task that is looking out the window or checking your phone, might we suggest becoming a backer of the Toasteroid?
The futuristic appliance, which is supposed to start shipping in July of 2017 and has raised almost $90,000 on Kickstarter, aims to solve the problem with our current toasters, which is that all they can do is cook things. The toaster connects to your smartphone via bluetooth, and using the Toasteroid’s app, allows you to select a design, draw a picture of your own, write messages, or have the weather forecast toasted into bread.
If you don’t care about being able to communicate passively aggressively with your roommates via bread, you still might want the item. Because it has the capability of darkening the bread in a precise way, you can make your breakfast exactly as dark as you want without having to hover over it the entire time it cooks.
You can get the Toasteroid for an $85 contribution, or a mini one for $65.
