Razer is making a toaster because why not

Perhaps more importantly, will the toaster be compatible with Razer Chroma and require a Razer Synapse account to toast bread?

What started out as a joke on Facebook a few years ago eventually got the attention of Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan. The outlandish idea of a Razer-branded toaster that would imprint the Razer logo onto each toasted bread had collected over a million likes from users over the years. Even Razer turned it into an official April Fool's joke in 2016.

Fast-forward to 2019 and Tan has just revealed through Facebook that he will be deploying a team of designers and engineers on the toaster project and be involving the community in some way. Needless to say, Razer fans are ecstatic at the prospect of an official Razer Toaster in the future.

Unfortunately, Tan says the final product will "take a few years" and so we shouldn't expect any pre-order incentives soon. We'll just have to wait to find out how Razer will inevitably outfit its toaster with LEDs or other advanced features to be worthy of the Razer name.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
