Design a 50+ mpg fuel injection system, patent it, and make a fortune from the big 3 when they want to buy it to crush the patent.

I like how you channeled the body down over the rubber bumber frame. Gives it that low to the ground look.

Speaking of toasters, did you design the Scion XB?

Nice work.

I really dig the toaster. It's funny, but I was just shopping for a toaster the other day. Art Deco seems to tbe the trend. Though, I personally am looking for the art deco look being my home was made in the forties, your toaster would look right at home in a newer house where the art deco one looks out of place. Your toaster looks like it was late model car inspired which is what you should be doing. Designing new products is all about making them "fit in" with the world around them, and that toaster does just that. It looks alot like the dash designs of a 2008 car, very cool.

The lights, they are way out there like the runway designs in Paris where the models are wearing stuff like that. I don't "get it" but I don't have to, your teacher does.

The bottom one with the wire and cube is the most interesting.

You know, I never thought about just how much time goes into the design of stuff like that toaster on the store shelf. "Time" being MONEY, or pay check for the people who do them. I never thought about this until I was at a family reunion in Arkasas and met a cousin of the wifes who has done just that as a carreer for years! He worked for Maytag designing washers for years! Like I aways say "Thank God for the artist, this world would be pretty boring without them". So a BIG "Thank you" from me personally!

Brian

Or one that makes toast taste like they were made on a Coleman stove. Tastes good when camping, but probably tantamount for the health as to bbq-ing a steak on diesel flames.

I like it! The design is simple but has modern lines. I like that the openings are beveled so that crumbs fall back into the toaster instead of laying on top.
Include a little brush/broom to sweep out crumbs and you have a great idea!
Also I like the design of the button location. Maybe offer in different color combos.

Hope this helps. - DV
