News Toaster

The one who starts a habit to obtain news in the morning, especially a office man, tends to browse the mobile news or read newspapers while having breakfast. However, mobiles and newspapers are extremly unhygienic with harmful bacteria. News Toaster helps to make toothsome bread with news text toasted on it. Once turned on ,it can download the intraday headlines through the Internet, and then print those information on the bread slices by heating-element dot matrix. By using News Toaster, people can enjoy a healthful breakfast along with fresh news.
