I’ve seen my fair share of custom game consoles, but Jarno Kotavuopio‘s NES toaster is definitely in a league of its own. It features tons of lights, cool buttons and chrome fixtures–and it’s actually a functional system!

Remember when we talked about that Darth Vader toaster that toasts “Star Wars” on the side of the bread? Well, it’s finally available! Now when the Sith Lord stops by for breakfast you’ll know exactly what to serve him. Oh, by the way, you should probably skip serving him blue milk. Might remind him a bit too much of Tatooine, if you catch my drift.

Tolkien

This past Saturday marked what would have been J.R.R. Tolkien’s 123rd birthday, and fans celebrated by raising a glass in his honor and sharing the photos on social media. The toast has become an annual tradition held at 9pm local time that has carried on even after his death on September 2, 1973. From dragon goblets to pint glasses to fireplace shrines, the pictures tell the story of fans who are grateful for his life’s work.

toast

Here’s a new one. This video game by Bossa Studios has you carefully moving a piece of bread around a room. It’s supposed to be all part of its quest to become toast, and from the trailer it looks rather perilous. It falls into a toilet, wields a giant knife, and goes for a spin on a ceiling fan—all while you control each of its four corners to move it along. Who needs zombie games when you can play as the walking bread?

Check out the gameplay in the video after the break.

In this gloriously insane video, the guys at Photonicinduction amp up a regular toaster to a level that the fire department would likely not approve. They use huge power supplies to push up the voltage and watts of a poor toaster so that the thing glows like molten lava and cooks/sets fire to bread in just ten seconds.

He’s the work of Japanese company Tokyo Hands and will surely send kids off to school happy.

butterup 2

If you’ve ever had a problem buttering something because the butter was too hard or because you can’t keep a pat of butter on a knife (yes, I’m that person), allow me to introduce you to The Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp Kickstarter project.

The ButterUp is a knife that quickly and easily grates your butter onto the knife for easy spreadability. No muss or fuss or broken toast.

No wonder this thing has funded way beyond the proposed budget. It’s one of those wonderfully simple but brilliant items that are an absolute must-have.

Head after the break to see their video.

selfie toaster

Are you ready to eat your favorite selfie every morning? You could get that image (or just about any other one) on toast with a custom toaster from Vermont Novelty Toaster Corporation. Images, line art, clip art, logos, notes – they can make it all. It’s certainly one way to make the early hours more interesting.

No one knows who’s a part of Anonymous because, well, you know, they’re anonymous. But your toast appears to be a member. This toaster burns the Guy Fawkes mask on your toast—so there’s no telling what it might do to your insides after you swallow it.

cadbury egg in toast

Easter is nearly here, and that means Cadbury creme eggs have flooded supermarket shelves. Sure, you can eat them right out of the wrapper, but you can also use the chocolate treat to make other desserts.

Serious Eats has taken the breakfast “egg in hole toast” concept and sweetened it by making a pound cake with a Cadbury creme egg in the middle. It sounds like it would make for a decadent and delicious dessert that’s also pretty simple to make. You have plenty of time to gather the ingredients before Sunday!
