Basheer Tome's Hue Smart Toaster Ensures Perfectly Browned Bread Every Time

Toasters can be quite unpredictable, especially with age but designer Basheer Tome has perfected the system with his color-sensing toaster called Hue.

Typical toasters use timers or have dials that point to different symbols that supposedly represent the different levels of doneness the user prefers. Unfortunately, these options are often the easiest to wear out, which makes adjusting the perfect time even more difficult. Basheer Tome's Hue toaster is programmed to detect the different tints and shades of brown without trial and error. Taking into the consideration of different breads as well as other items like bagels, the designer has incorporated a foolproof function that's hassle and worry-free so users can make breakfast in a relaxed manner.
