Last Call: The Ferrari of toasters comes from Mitsubishi?

While this is technically from Mitsubishi Electric and not the car company, it’s still funny to think that they are so closely related. This amazing machine called the TO-ST1-T only does one slice at a time because you can’t rush perfection obviously. They wanted to treat every slice with respect. Now isn’t that just adorable?

I’m not sure who would really want this, but I guess someone might? And for $373 you sure have to really like toast, like a lot. But you have to give some credit to the high craftsmanship that went into this. Avocado toast anyone?

Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, but it’s also encouraged.

My name is Colby Buchanan and I love all things car-related all the way from rusted 240sx's to McLaren Senna's and of course I have a soft spot for American Muscle. You can spot me in my bone stock '06 350z named MackenZ.

  1. If they could make a car that ran on sex it would revolutionize hitchhiking. And drag racing.

    1. And long distance travel. And begging for gas money. Semi drivers will need, um, dedication. Family trips would be illegal in most countries.

  2. To follow on from yesterday, it was announced this morning at about 10am that the Aust GP would be cancelled, an hour after the Victorian Premier announced that spectators would not be allowed to attend on public health grounds, over an hour after gates were supposed to open (those waiting kept in the dark) and a little longer than that when it was still being discussed as going ahead. At 7:30am there was a 2-seater F1 car lapping the track.

    Further to the confirmed case in McLaren, 14 more staff went into isolation and it was also reported that Vettel and Raikkonen flew home some time last night while Chase Carey apparently arrived in Melbourne just this morning – strange he wasn’t already at the first event of the season. Mercedes had also announced they would not take part.

    1. Nothing that can’t be done with a laser cutter and hours of time to adjust intensities to match greyscales to brownscales!

  3. Consumption satire , I like it. You can get a nice phone at Dollar General for under $50.00 but everybody goes for the status symbol $1000.00 I phone .

  5. Back when I worked for Design Central, we were hired by Jenn Air to design a toaster for their Attrezzi line of high end artsy small appliances. We researched how to best toast bread, different toasting technologies and bought a lot of toasters to see which one worked best. The best one was the cheapest one, under $20 I believe.

    The Attrezzi ended up close to $300, I think, and that was probably almost 10 years ago.

    Overstock still has a listing for them, but not in stock.

    1. Obligatory:

      Though in my opinion he misses many points:
      1. Anything that can be built by people can be repaired or improved by people.
      2. Generally using iteration.
      3. And economies of scale.
