Smart bread

— 12:23 AM on April 8, 2001

BBC News has something a little offbeat:

A Brunel design student has developed a toaster that takes a weather forecast from the internet and then browns your bread with an image of what weather to expect on the way to work.

The image is burned onto the bread by using one of three stencils, representing sunny, cloudy or rainy conditions.

Eventually the stencils could be changed for a more sophisticated imaging system that might be able to burn weather maps, short text messages and even adverts on to bread.

Even better than sliced bread.
