When Mal first mentioned this baby, I thought it was such a great idea. Not just in the cool patterns like this that toasters should be able to make, but also the vast array of Star Wars references that would be opened up at breakfast. Check out the fun the guys had covering the toaster over on neatorama.

So this begs the obvious follow up question - I have a bad feeling about this - perhaps a programmable toaster is the next iteration. Being able to print out on toast your own designs seems like something every household should have. Be it an internet aware toaster that you can ask to throw a random or most popular image on for you, or whether you have your own library or perhaps it takes its cue from your iTunes library or even the latest news - where will it all end???
Do not be too proud of this technological terror you have constructed, the ability to toast pictures onto bread is insignificant to the power of cereal. hmmm, I think I will leave the Star Wars refs there before things get worse.
