The Image Toaster, created by Scott van Haastrecht, is a cooking device that combines the news with breakfast.

Haastrecht came up with this concept for a Creative Technology course called Innovation Lab. His aim was to liven up morning meals by incorporating pixelated imagery onto toast. Thus, he created the Image Toaster, an appliance that prints a daily image relevant to the date. For instance, on Valentine's Day you would wake up to an 8-bit heart on your toast.

The device searches the Internet for images related to the date, as per Google, and downloads it onto the bread in 6 x 6 pixels. The Image Toaster is sure to resonate well with foodies who seek to add a little character to their morning meals. Stats for Pixel Printing Toasters Trending: Older & Average
