Here’s a fun contraption that could make breakfast that much more photographic each morning. The Image Toaster by Scott van Haastrecht searches Google Images for that day’s date every morning, and then burns a randomly chosen result onto your toast at 6×6 pixels.
Of course, at that resolution, it certainly won’t replace a gander through the morning’s paper (do people still read newspapers?), but it’s a fun idea that could some day turn your toast into a daily work of art (or news). For now the prototype still needs to be connected to a computer to do its thing, but Haastrecht hopes to have it working off of nothing more than WiFi and a power cord in the near future.
