The Toasteroid is a smart toaster that is designed to make it possible for you to make your bread a little more interesting to look at by making it possible for you to go ahead and have customized images and messages printed onto your slice of toast. This particular smart toaster allows you to do things such as print to-do reminders, weather forecast information and emojis onto your toast.

Developed by a Brooklyn-based company, this smart toaster is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, with a pledge of $85 allowing you to secure a unit for yourself once they are made available for commercial production and delivery.

The Toasteroid essentially works by relying on a sliding scale of brownness and a special grid of micro-filament heating elements that are used to print your chosen message or image.

The possibilities with this smart toaster are endless, and it could help people send fun messages to their roommates or partners or even find a novel way to literally propose a toast to someone.
