Since I couldn’t sleep, I started looking through old pictures on compy. I reminisced about the good old days; I wondered what so-and-so was doing now; I saw friends as they were years ago; I missed Berkeley.

Transparent Toaster

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 the transparent heating glass featured in this issue. Although the glass does not currently get hot enough to toast bread, someday this application may be possible. The concept was developed by the Inventables Concept Studio.
