Designers have an inkling to somehow revolutionize toasters, if they could only get those pesky electronics to work out. This Transparent Toaster has that potential, but with a few kinks to work out before it can be released.
It would be nice to be able to see exactly how dark your toast is going to turn out with no worries of overdone toast. It works with transparent heating glass. I just hope they make that glass easy to pop out to clean, otherwise that glass won't be transparent for long.
The only issue is that the glass isn't quite getting hot enough to cook the toast completely. Once that issue is fixed it would be a cool toaster to have around.
