Zuse toast printer
In the series ‘the most stupid object ever’, this one deserves a special award!
‘Zuse’ engages its optical sensor to recognize bread and thereon activates the digitalization process of the toast. ‘Zuse’ doesn’t see itself merely as a compact toasting device but more like a print-maker of the traditional kind. Inspired by the early matrix printers, it now engages in burning black & white pictures with 12 by 12 pixel resolution into the toast by diligently marking line by line. With its candid intention of providing happiness to its owner Zuse can randomly draw from its repertoire of images encoded in its memory chip.
