“I got the idea from looking at my scanner and printer beside my computer,” explains Scan Toaster’s creator, Sung Bae Chang, a design student at Sejong University in South Korea. “I was chatting with my friends and suddenly thought, ‘How about scanning to a piece of toasting bread?’ and then started to brainstorm the idea.”

“So I researched the Internet generation and found that they like new things that are fun and interesting. I feel that my concept fits into that by giving them news articles or snapshots on their toast.”

I know of a few toast fanatics that would dig this. You know who you are.
