Magimix Vision Toaster

How many times have you burned toast in the morning? More often than not, probably. Well here’s the solution; a see through toaster which allows you to see to what degree your toast is made. It also has a setting which lets you widen it, so that you can fit rolls, bagels, ciabattas and even croissants into the toaster. Magic.

Food Sniffer

It’s not as crude and useless as it sounds.
If you’ve got chicken sitting in a bowl in your fridge, and you’re not sure if it’s gone-off, this is your answer. The gaudy-green remote  is put near the suspect chicken, connects to your smartphone and tells you whether its edible or not. And it doesn’t just work for chicken; it tests an array of different foods in order to keep your kitchen safe.


This Pan connects to your phone also, and what it can do is really amazing. You stick a slab of meat into your pan, connect the pan to the app on your phone, and the pan will then feed you all the information you need: including the heat of the pan, how long is left before it’s ready, and when you need to flip it.
Fool-proof, as long as your phone’s smart.

This might be useful if you’re a beer connoisseur or a craft-beer fanatic.  That whisk could not only be used for foaming beer, but for foaming milk for a proper barista coffee as well. Just a thought.


If you like a fruity alcohol concoction, this could be your life solution (or the end of your social life, depending on how attached to the stuff you are). Another app-controlled appliance, you fill the test-tube like containers at the side with the correct juices, place a glass under the spout, then go to the app and choose the cocktail you want. The machine does the rest – a phrase we use a lot here at The Gadget Buzz.

Does Blackberry’s open letter have a return address?

Tomorrow, Blackberry will release a letter to media outletss worldwide. When I got news of this tonight, I stumbled mentally for a moment. I thought it reminiscent of the "There is life after Apple" Chiat/Day letter from Steve Jobs in the Wall Street Journal 25 years ago. For a minute I allowed techno-romance to gnaw at me, but only for a minute. Tomorrow's open missal from Blackberry reminds me more of a fake letter that appeared in Chinese newspaper, The Southern Metropolis Daily a couple of months ago, and then found it's way around China via the micro-blogging Weibo.

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
