Wake Up Food Alarm by De Dietrich
I have a love/hate relationship with Yanko Design's site. I love that they serve up a dazzling array of great products that make me literally bounce up and down in my chair and emit disturbing little "yip yip yip" noises. I hate the fact that some of the ones that bring me closest to retail ecstasy are only concepts. Sigh. This mechanical midget butler-wannabe is one of those. Just imagine: your alarm sounds and you roll over to find not a wad of bills left on the table from your guest the night before but your CHOICE of coffee, juice or hot chocolate AND TOAST! Yes, TOAST! And if you know me, you know I love me some toast. But alas, until this concept becomes a reality I will leave my ad in the paper for "vertically challenged mini-man to serve as morning butler. Some back-scratching required. Must wear gloves. Stumpy fingers creep me out."
