Razer, the peripheral producer and designer of high-end laptops, cellular units, and the occasional high-concept PC, has introduced that it’s coming into the high-fashion world of… kitchen home equipment.
Again in 2013, a fan jokingly requested Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan to create a Razer toaster. Tan replied that they’d already made one. This was picked up by Mark Withers, one other Razer lover, who began harassing the CEO by begging for a toaster morning, midday, and evening. Withers even created a Fb web page for his marketing campaign. Finally, Tan agreed to make a Razer toaster if the Fb web page might hit one million likes.
The corporate stayed in on the joke because the years rolled by. It even launched a 2016 April Idiot’s joke video with Mission Breadwinner, together with the picture above, highlighting points of its “fauxster” design.
As of at present, the web page has handed 1,000,000 likes, although apparently a number of individuals had been prepared to get Razer Toaster tattoos and thereby pushed the full efficient “Like” rely as much as a million with out really hitting that quantity. Consequently, Tan has acknowledged their accomplishment and Razer will now construct a toaster.
Sure, tattoos. 12 of them. You’ll be able to see photos right here. Tan acknowledged the accomplishment in a tweet of his personal as properly:
So this morning, I used to be having espresso with our Chief Technique Officer in a crowded coffeeshop and a pleasant woman walks in together with her youngsters and sits beside me. As I received as much as depart, she leaned over and stated, “I am trying ahead to the toaster”.
What have I finished?

So, because of the intrepid motion of those courageous people, Razer is now going to truly construct a toaster. It should make toast with a Razer brand burned into it. The product will probably be often called: “A Razer Toaster – For Razer Toaster Lovers. By Razer Toaster Lovers.” I’m questioning if the corporate may wind up with its personal line of specialty merchandise on the reducing fringe of copper cookware and LED integration.
We’ve come a good distance from the Boomslang, child. This may be the primary kitchen equipment/PC product crossover I’m conscious of, however the prospects appear limitless. Built-in LEDs contained in the heating chamber might let you recognize when your toast was about to be finished by slowly altering shade from inexperienced to crimson because the timer ran down. There’s received to be one thing we are able to stuff right into a toaster price overclocking. Perhaps it might combine an LCD, controller, and Wi-Fi 6 help for native sport streaming whereas making breakfast?
Infinite prospects. Unbelievable toast.
So it goes.
