Part of Ivo Vos’s “Brunch” collection, the Trebuchet Toaster is a toaster with a difference. This retro toaster not only allows you to produce toast just the way you like it but allows you to catapult or trebuchet your toast. A trebuchet is a siege engine that was employed in the Middle Ages either to smash masonry walls or to throw projectiles over them – Thanks Wikipedia) toast.
Why would you want a toaster with this concept? Well I don’t really know but I can imagine it might be fun using the calibration feature to calculate the trajectory and force of the toast in order to hit the intended target, i.e. the plate.
Not sure when or even if this product will be commercially available, but if it is released then making breakfast may just get more fun!
