Someone Made A Knife That Toasts Bread While You Cut It
... "Yup! Just like in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy movie! YouTuber – and probably one who always knows where his towel is – Colin Furze created this one of a kind bread-toasting knife after taking the suggestion from a fan. Oh, what a time to be alive.
2005’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy was met with mixed reviews but it still chock full of fun moments from the book of the same name. Douglas Adams, author of the book series, also co-wrote the script so despite some changes of the source material and outright additions that never appeared in the books, the movie still has that distinct Adams feel.
The movie chose to use Trillian’s (Zooey Deschanel) demonstration of all things futuristic and literally space-age to Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman) by showing off a very lightsaber-like (sound effects included) butter knife that toasted your bread as it cuts. ...
Onto the real world though! Furze up and made the damn thing! While not as sleek or laser sword-ish as it’s seen in the movie the knife does a pretty great job at replicating the results! With a build that seems borderline dangerous, using a microwave’s transformer connected to a serrated blade that serves as the heating element.
The results are fairly suprising as it does produce – albeit a bit uneven – decent looking toast. Furze then displays the alternate uses of the tool for toasting a single slice of toast and then simultaneously melting and spreading butter on it. ..."
