Toaster Charger

Hyun-A Ko’s Toaster Battery Charger sucks up most sizes of lithium ion batteries. Place one in the upper slot, push the handle down, and after a while it will pop back up with a full recharge. Those who are antsy waiting for the charge can watch the color coded LED display that is bread-shaped. Put it next to your Wake ‘n bacon alarm clock and you get breakfast, sort of. The prototype is certainly on the right track and may make a dull chore moderately amusing.

Turbo Toaster Designed Out of Frustration

Turbo Toaster

Oliver Newberry, a graduate of Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London, got perturbed when his beans, one of his fave meals, wouldn’t stay hot while he was making his toast. His prototype Turbo Toaster was born, apparently impressive enough to allow funding from Heinz. We admire ingenuity here at Gear Live but wonder if he could just keep the legumes on the burner while making his toast or perhaps make the toast first and the beans will reheat it. The thought of that breakfast may not get our taste buds excited, but it certainly helped Newberry land a gig.

Messenger ToasterMessenger Toaster

We’ve seen plenty of toasters that imprint dinosaurs, skulls and crossbones, and even Hello Kitty on bread, but this is the first one we have found that sounds practical.

This prototype might also serve as an excellent excuse. “Sorry dear, I guess I ate the grocery list.”
