According to designer Ivo Vos, the catapulting toaster is one of several products “that address the desire for skill, struggle, rituals, perfection, preparation and anticipation – qualities lost when we indulge in the comforts of prozac technology.” It’s also just really awesome to launch a piece of toast onto your plate. Angle and force are both adjustable, but there’s no word on the toaster’s ability to brown evenly. The greater “Brunch” collection includes a teapot that records your best pouring height and a set of cutlery that looks invisible against an accompanying placemat, but the catapult is the most fun.
