Do you remember Microsofts presentation about a connected toaster in combination with AllJoyn (WinHEC 2015) ?
if not take a look
https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/WinHEC/2015/IOT200 ~0:30

why is this important?
because @CES 2017 Griffin Technology unveiled Griffin Home, a Collection of Smart, AppPowered Appliances that Simplify and Enhance Everyday Routines

i am still not sure if an app simplify my everyday routines but if you have enough money ($99,-) you can buy a toaster that you can control from an app (but it seems they don't support Windows Mobile)

Internet of Crap?

Do you suppose anyone is working on an IoToilet? I'm sure there's a market for one.

I am working on a toilet flushing system (G120 and 5" LCD display) and I have a methane gas sensor to detect someone doing a number 2. The idea is that the cistern only fills to a lower level for short flushing and if it detects the gas, it will fill the cistern to full ready for when you are finished. Smiley

Still a work in progress. I call it Bogtech. (Bog being a Scottish word for the toilet)

The toaster idea does have some merits but not sure you need to connected to the phone. I like the idea of having different user settings as I like my toast dark but my wife likes if lighter so having a button to select your own preferred setting does offer something different and useful.

I think it would be easier to just have a NFC reader in the toaster, and an app on your phone that sets your toast preferences.

Then all someone needs to do is wave their phone by the toaster, the toaster recognizes the person, grabs their preferences via nfc rfid (if they have changed) and makes the toast to their specification. Including any custom dark bitmap toast images the user may have sketched on his phone, and produce the image such as made by toasters like this:

If you are going to involve a phone, instead of just a button, you might as well leverage it and include fancy stuff like custom toast images.

Would also work for coffee and the custom froth-art on top.

Actually, it would probably be much more successful as a custom froth-art app.

Okay, I have dibs on that idea.

@mtylerjr - It would be better if you had a wearable that recognized the EMI of the toaster and then sent it your preferences, that way I don't have to hold my phone in my hand while operating kitchen equipment.
