The news-burning USB toaster: Newspapers’ salvation?

Forget about E Ink devices. The newspaper industry ought to give its subscribers the Scan Toaster, a gizmo that burns news, weather and images onto pieces of toast.

It was created Sung Bae Chang of Sejong University in South Korea for a design competition by Electrolux, seeking ideas for appliances that could appear on the market three to five years in the future.

The toaster was named a finalist in July, but it’s making the rounds on gadget blogs now, since Electrolux uploaded this image to Flickr Wednesday. (A better picture, showing the news printed on toast, is at The Register.)
