Portable Toaster by Kim Been


The concept has been dream up by Korean designer Kim Been and although still only in the preliminary stages, it is hoped it could be available in shops in Britain by the end of the year.
At first glance it looks like a cake slice. The device works by spreading the heat - produced via nanotechnology using molecular-sized tubes of carbon - with the unique iron-like ceramic unit until the bread is toasted to a suitable brown, crispy taste.

On the other side of the toaster, heat-sensitive illustrations of vines and butterflies appear and multiply as the bread becomes browner.
Like conventional toasters, it takes two to three minutes to toast the bread, although it is slower as only one side can be toasted at a time.
 Apparently, all you need to do is run it over your bread just like a huge butter knife, and it will toast that particular side of the bread. Guess you ought to be extra careful when brandishing this unless you want to suffer from an accidental burn!The concept has been dreamt up by Korean designer Kim Been and although still only in the preliminary stages, it is hoped it could be available in shops in Britain by the end of the year.

Nonetheless it should be ideal for campers or for those who wanted to take sandwiches into work for their lunch, but would like them to be toasted for a change.
