Info Toaster

Rolf Coppens
June 18th 2006

Toasted bread as an information display device (originally developed in 2001 but somehow still intruiging): a toaster that parses meteorological information from the web and then browns bread with an image of what weather to expect, readable and consumable on the way to work. The image is burned on to the bread by one of 3 stencils, representing sunny, cloudy or rainy conditions.

Eventually, the stencils could become more sophisticated, to display detailed weather maps, short text messages and even advertisements on to bread.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
