Super-Toaster wins award for highest propelled toast

The great thing about toast is that it's fast - slap bread into toaster, wait a couple of minutes, there's your toast.  Usually you don't have to worry about it taking your eye out or possibly maiming you, but that's the fire you're playing with if you're trying to toast with Freddie Yauner's "The Highest Popping Toaster In The World".

This monstrous ballistic-bread cannon is in the Guiness Book of Records for the highest toast launching.  In the picture you can see your breakfast apparently reaching the top of UK landmark Nelson's Column.

Check out the super-toaster in action after the cut!

Since you don't get massive air with a standard spring, Yauner fitted his super-toaster with a mechanical arm and a high-pressure CO2 launch system. His friends over at Roaming Robots helped out with the hardware. 

I'm not entirely sure how high you have to propel fresh toast in order to get into the Book of Records, but I'm imagining it's pretty darned high indeed.  Scarier, perhaps, is the fact that you'll soon be able to buy your own super-toaster kit.  Watch out low flying planes!
