This is a Transparent Glass Toaster. I call it the InvisiToaster, but that’s just me and I have a knack for naming things. The concept was created by Inventables Concept Studio who are looking to manufacture the toaster. The thing works by heating glass technology, whatever that is. SCIENCE!

Obviously the see-through design is meant to prevent your toast from getting any more toasty than you’d like. But seriously? I’ve got better things to do than to sit and watch my toast toast. No… no I don’t. BUT I like to throw caution to the wind and just let the toaster surprise me!

Will it be extra crispy? Barely browned? Golden perfection? I don’t know, but the suspense is killing me! What can I say? I live an uneventful life.

The blurb from their site:

To demonstrate how the Inventables Marketplace can be used to inspire new product innovations, we brainstormed and created renderings for some new product concepts. Each of the concepts takes an unmet need and marries it with a material or technology found in the marketplace.

This transparent toaster allows you to see the bread while it is toasting so you’re never surprised by toast that comes out too dark. This idea is based on a transparent heating glass technology.

Although the glass does not currently get hot enough to toast bread, the vendor explained that, with some R&D, this application may be possible.

The concept was developed by the Inventables Concept Studio.
