The Zuse Toaster – for pixelated toast

The Zuse Toaster – for pixelated toast

If you get tired of waking up every morning to dull blank toast this toaster might be just the way to spruce up your routine. It works much like a dot matrix printer and burns 12 x 12 pixel images onto your bread.

It can be programmed to use random patterns or even better, it can use a bit of your own designs. Which means you can get those creative juices going first thing in the morning.

The tiny vacuum cleaner to save a bit of energy

The tiny vacuum cleaner to save a bit of energy

If you're living in a smaller apartment or even a carpeted dorm room it's not really necessary to own a full size vacuum. They both use a ton of energy and take up way too much storage room, Morphy Richards has created a smaller alternative for those small spaces.

The Automatic Paper Towel Dispenser offers less mess

The Automatic Paper Towel Dispenser offers less mess

If you're one of those clumsy sorts you might need a paper towel dispenser to keep you from wasting half a roll from unraveling eight sheets instead of one. I personally have never had that problem, you just have to know when to pop your wrist. However, since I am clumsy with practically everything else I can appreciate a paper towel holder that promises to get rid of all that pesky unraveling.

The Iwavecube Personal Microwave

If you're in desperate need of a hidden microwave this teeny little guy could be concealed under a regular office desk if needed. I'm sure every college dorm and office could use one of these bad boys.

Air Shadow hides those hideous fan blades

Air Shadow hides those hideous fan blades

Design doesn't always need to make complete sense, sometimes it just needs to wow people beyond their own logic. I don't recall ever thinking fan blades were such a huge design flaw that they needed to be taken off immediately, but apparently someone thinks it's a bit of a eye sore.

Blendie 2000 from students at MIT

Blenders haven't changed a lot over the years, they blend. Its pretty basic and leaves little room for a huge change or revolution. However, MIT students have created the Blendie 2000 and have managed to completely change the way I look at a blender. The video included is the most hilarious thing I've seen that involves a blender.

WMF1 Coffee Pad makes just one cup of java

WMF1 Coffee Pad makes just one cup of java

Clearly, making a single cup of coffee isn’t all that new of a concept, but how you do it can win you awards. Such as the 2007 Red Dot award the creators of this coffee maker won.

I am not a coffee drinker, I give it a go every so often just in case my tastes might have changed, but they never do, but I am a big fan of highly attractive consumer appliances such as this one. There is a single cup, and it takes a pre-measured 1-cup’s worth of coffee filter.

The Penguin Tea Timer

The Penguin Tea Timer
