Turbo Toaster Breakfast Blastoff

Don't wait for toast - demand that the turbo toaster prototype created by Oliver Newberry be given venture capital funding immediately!


(Turbo Toaster delivers)

A graduate of Central St. Martins College in London, Newberry designed the muscular appliance for Heinz. The good people at Heinz have given their blessing for Dragon's Den funding (who knew the BBC was into VC?). Natan Ansell of Heinz acutely observed "With more Brits leading busier, more solitary lifestyles than ever before, this innovative toaster design is an ingenious kitchen gadget."

The inventor's inspiration? Necessity, as always - beans on toast for breakfast.

"The design came out of sheer frustration that by the time the toast is ready, my beans have gone cold. I've been fine-tuning the toaster's speedy components to enable the design to produce the perfect toast in a quick and efficient way. I'm absolutely chuffed with the results."

As far as sfnal predecessors are concerned, the Jetson's may not have improved upon old-fashioned slow-cooking toasters - but they've got the delivery system downpat, using tiny helicopter attachments.

As much as I admire the method, still, speed is of the essence. I can't help thinking that LOX could speed things up. Which brings us to one of the web's earliest viral videos.
