Breakfast + Science = Fun

Breakfast + Science = Fun

Wake up. Yawn. Scratch. Avoid cat. Pour coffee. Drink coffee. Brush teeth. Think about the bulldozer. Surely there's something fun to do here? Ivo Vor thinks so.

"The Brunch is a series of consumer products that celebrates the mundane," says his website. In response, you may find yourself thinking, "But it's breakfast. How much fun can that be?" Well, quite a lot really.

First things first, let's make the tea. The teapot measures the height you can pour tea from, while the milk and sugar are measured to astounding accuracy.

The neurotic cutlery turn invisible if you look at them the wrong way, and the precision bread slicer holds your bread slices to be exactly the right thickness to put in the toaster-catapult.

Yes, the Wii-inspired toaster, which thanks to its 42° angle and 5.2N of force, can hurl your freshly-browned toast across the room to land on your neurotic plate.

But toast gets cold quickly, so designers Ami Drach and Dov Ganchrow have invented a warming plate, for which they obviously took inspiration from the defrosting capabilities of a car's rear window.

The plate has "silk-screened gold and amorphic metal films" embedded in its surface. This enables the 12V plug-in plate to heat up and keep your chosen food warm.

Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Unfortunately, all of these items are only prototypes at the moment, so it's back to the same old pancakes, grits, hash brown, and sausage for you.

All sounds expensive...but oh so kewl. Could make some pretty kewl Goldberg machines with them im sure

Toasterpult! Oh my God, a toasterpult!

Finally! All I need is radioactive bread that bounces twice, then sticks to scenery and explodes, and I can recreate MDK2! Y'know, apart from the four-armed gun-wielding robotic dog, or the guy in the rubber suit with the physics-defying parachute and the giant pointy thing. So, mostly Dr. Hawkin's parts. Except for everything else. So, only the toast. And the clothes. And I'll stop now.

If it's not called The Toasterpult or The ToastCannon or something similar, I'll be disappointed.

You are so win for the MDK2 reference. So. Win.

Thank y' kindly. One of the few games I've finished (I have a severe case of Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!), and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Agreed MDK2 was such a great game. I don't need luck, I have science!

I really want a toaster like this.

I don't even care about the toaster. Kudos for the H2G2 reference.

Well, if you look closely, the toaster is obviously massively important. What angle does it shoot your toast at?

My sentiments exaclty.
Surely you can get the cat involved, firing hot slices of bread at it. Beats throwing mine out of a first floor window every morning...

How foolish of me! Now it just needs to burn "What do you get when you multiply six by nine" into the toast and they've got a sale.

I strap it to the cat, if toast always lands butter side down and a cat always lands on it's feet, will they both land on their side?

Does it land on the sand-wich-es there?

Sorry, had to join in with the puns
