Crossed Bread Browners
The Philips Sustainable Toaster is Powered by a Static Bike

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) May 18, 12

While some people may look to grander gestures to save the planet as well as reduce those expensive electricity bills, the Philips Sustainable Toaster is a small step in the right direction. Its uncommonly crossed design may take precedence at first, but as soon as a person learns that it is powered by kinetic energy harnessed by way of a static bike, that detail will be pushed to the bottom of the list.

The Philips Sustainable Toaster was created by Spanish designer Miren Arrieta-Odria. Second runner up at the the Domestic Appliances Design Award organized by Philip-TUDelft, is also uses 34 percent less energy thanks to its four insulated compartments. This allows people to toast single slices of bread at a time.
