Asia’s largest race car made from bread

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on August 30th, 2009

Asia’s largest race car made from breadWe all know that if you want to get into the racing game, it takes a lot of cash. Scratch. Benjamins. Dough. Bread. Oh yes, it takes a lot of bread. Actual bread made by bakers in this case. A bunch of crazy chefs got together and created a Formula One racing car with 22 different types of bread.

The Culinary Executive Chef from the Royal Plaza On Scotts in Singapore led a team of six chefs, two artists, two technicians, two culinary staff members and five volunteers to create this bread-winner. They call ‘Asia’s Largest Race Car Made From Bread’. It took 33 pounds of yeast alone, 14 liters of water, 4.4 pounds of salt and around three gallons of varnish.

Trebuchet Toaster launches bread across the room

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2009

Trebuchet Toaster flings your bread across the roomThis toaster is part of Ivo Vos’s ‘Brunch’ collection. It’s a toast catapult or trebuchet. One cool feature is that it lets you calibrate the force and angle of your toast’s trajectory. Presumably so that you can have a plate all set up in the right place. It’s one of many prototypes for kitchen equipment from the Dutch designer.

It’s all about precision. In fact, the project is intended to be a statement on perfection, precision, and order. But the important thing is this: This toaster launches your damn toast. And that’s awesome. I’m guessing we won’t see it come to market for awhile, which is a shame. Toasters were meant to function in such ways.

Darth Vader toaster brands your bread with the dark side

Darth Vader toaster brands your bread with the dark sideI’m not sure which is more awesome, this Vader toaster or the old Cylon toaster. Hey, that’s why bread has two sides. Start your day with a breakfast branded with the image of the dark side’s lead spokesperson. As Luke would say, “There’s still good in him, I taste it.” This toaster will cost you $55 and you’ll be cleaning up Salacious Crumbs. How’s that for a bad nerd joke?

Scantoaster puts the Internet onto your bread

Scantoaster puts the Internet onto your breadWhen you think about it, it’s kind of weird that toast is such a hugely popular food. I mean it’s basically burnt bread that’s ready to crumble in your hands. What’s weirder are all the new ways we’ve found to enjoy toast. We can even make it in our PC’s and decorate it with a frakken cylon. The Scan Toaster printer concept takes it all a step further, from designer Sung Bae Chang.

Details are a bit thin, but it connects to the internet via USB and can print images or text on bread using a flexible “module” unit heated by a wire. What it means is that you could read the news on the very breakfast that you eat. The Scan Toaster concept was a finalist in the 2008 Electrolux Design Lab competition. Sadly, it may be awhile before it hits the kitchen.

Drive bay toaster puts a toaster in your PC
It’s a real pain getting up from your computer and walking to the kitchen to get your favorite snack, toast. You would think that cylon toaster you bought would motivate you. If only you had a way to make toast with your computer.

Wait a minute. You’ve got that spare drive bay that you’ve never used. Meet the CrazyPC 5.25 Bay Toaster, a toaster that fits in a standard 5.25-inch drive bay, and even includes software for adjusting the heat and time. Just insert the bread like a doughy CD and wait. Hot fresh toast is served. I’m not sure how it handles the crumbs. If you’ve ever cleaned out your toaster you know that crumbs will collect on the bottom. Only $29.99.

MacBook Air can cut your flesh, slices bread

MacBook Air can cut your flesh, slices bread
Who knew that the MacBook Air could cut you? It’s not a laptop to be messed with. Piss it off and you’ll get an iCut. At least that’s what some whacky Germans are claiming. Supposedly “Apple Talk” reader Bajuware, was just hanging out minding his own business when his MBA went all bloodthirsty on his elbow.

It looks like it cut him good, like a convict with a shiv! Another German dude says that he can slice bread with his MBA. I don’t know if the MBA can actually seek vengeance on their human masters, but I like the idea that laptops can be multi-purpose tolls in the kitchen. They slice, they dice… I’m calling Ron Popeil. I have an idea.

Baked bread now looks like Doctor Who villian

Baked bread now looks like Doctor Who villian
Kittiwat Unarrom has a master’s degree in fine arts and enjoys making body parts out of bread at a bakery in Thailand. Very realistic and disturbing body parts. They’re made out of dough, raisins, cashews and chocolate. He even paints the outside with edible paint to give it an even more gruesome appearance.

What do I think about it? I’m still trying to figure out why these bread heads look like Sontarans.(A popular Doctor Who villian as any geek knows) They’re horrible. And it doesn’t help that those aluminum plates look like collars. If these things come to life and take over the world, I just wanted you to see who your new masters were.
