Toaster Adds Top Google Image Of The Day Onto Slice Of Bread

Toaster Adds Top Google Image Of The Day Onto Slice Of Bread

Scott van Haastrecht's 'Image Toaster' is a prototype device that connects to a computer and prints onto your morning meal

Dutch student Scott van Haastrecht wanted something to surprise him in the morning, rather than his usual boring slice of bread, so he built the Image Toaster. This prototype device was inspired by the claims that the face of Jesus has been found on a piece of toast and other projects that use templates to create an image on your bread.

Toaster Adds Image Related To The Day Onto Slice Of Bread

The Image Toaster searches Google images for pictures related to the current date and downloads a random image from the results, toasting a 6×6 pixel representation of it onto your bread.

Scott van Haastrecht created this prototype for his Creative Technology course “Innovation Lab” in University. For now it needs to be plugged into a computer to work, but he hopes to improve it so it only needs wi-fi and some power. You can learn more about the Image Toaster and see it in action in the video below:
