Slice of portability: Toast your bread on the go

Run this handheld portable toaster over your bread like a fancy butter knife and it toasts that side in your hand.

We've covered silly-slash-interesting concepts before, but I'm not really clear on how I should feel about this handheld portable toaster by Korean designer Been Kim. You apparently run it over your bread like a fancy butter knife and it toasts that side in your hand. An LCD readout on the back gradually tells you just how toasty your toast is getting.

The product, still a concept as far as we can tell, is apparently wireless and uses a cord-free charging system. We're not sure how practical this is or if it can replace a regular toaster, but it is a neat idea that we expect to see on the bus and street corners once it gets mass-produced. Design-wise, it looks fantastic.
