Delicious Toast, Soldered PCBs

If a gadget can make Totino’s Pizza Rolls and attach LEDs to a board, it’s good in my book. Such is the case with this amazing hack from Cornell students Ko Ihara and Kashif Javed. These guys turned a basic toaster oven into a soldering iron. The LED display even outputs temperature thanks to an ATmega32 microcontroller.

If you want to build your own, the instructions are up on the student’s site. Take warning though, as it’s a dangerous mod for doing somewhat-dangerous work. If I had a dollar for every time I burned myself on a toaster or soldering iron, I’d buy and turn it into a porn site.
