Could this selfie toaster be the next best thing since sliced bread?

face toast breakfast selfie toaster 2
In everybody’s life there are those days when we don’t want to get out of bed, when our hair is a total mess, and when we just generally can’t stand to look at ourselves. And then there are those days when we think we’re the most beautiful person that’s ever lived. On either of these days, don’t you sometimes wish you could eat your own face for breakfast? (Metaphorically speaking, of course – we do not condone self-cannibalism.)

Well, now you can, thanks to an ingenious (or absurd) new toaster that greets you each morning with your own portrait burned onto a piece of toast. How that works? Send your photo in to the manufacturer, give them a little time to custom-make your own, personal selfie toaster, and voilà – enjoy your freshly toasted face each morning.

Alternatively, if you don’t admire (or despise) your own face enough to warrant having it burned onto a piece of toast each morning, you can also have someone else’s face turned into a delicious slice of breakfast bread. Your husband/wife/kid/dog’s face, maybe? Or that of your favorite singer/actor/politician? And if you don’t want to eat anyone’s face for breakfast, the Vermont Novelty Toaster Corporation also sells toasters that burn Jesus onto your toast (sorry, that does not count as a “sighting”), a personalized note, or your company’s logo, for example.

The selfie toaster is available in five different colors for $75, with free shipping within the U.S. For more on this, check out the manufacturer’s website.

Sony A7 III mirorless camera is $300 off for Black Friday
Sony Alpha a7 III Mirrorless front view.

There are a lot of great Best Buy Black Friday deals going on right now, and whether you're looking for TVs, laptops, or even headphones, there's a little something for everybody. Of course, many folks may not realize that Best Buy has some fantastic deals on high-end photography gear, such as this Sony Alpha a7 III mirrorless camera. While it usually goes for a whopping $2,200, Best Buy had brought it down to $1,900, and while that relatively doesn't seem like much, you could always spend the $300 savings on a new lens.

Why you should buy the Sony Alpha a7 III
The Sony Alpha a7 III is a camera with so much tech that it might as well be three different cameras. It has excellent dynamic range, low-light performance, and high-speed performance, and the full-frame sensors make the images look absolutely stunning. Interestingly, the a7 III manages to do an excellent job at both low and high ISOs, the latter of which can go as high as 51,200 non-boosted, which, granted, adds a lot of noise, but noise reduction helps with that. As for the video, well, sadly, it's not as impressive, at least in terms of advancements in image quality, and while it can do 8-bit 4K at 30 frames per second, it's no longer ahead of the pack in that regard, like the Panasonic Lumix GH5 is with its 400Mbps 10-bit codec and 60-fps 4K.
