The Holy Toaster Kit is a Do-It-Yourself project which you can use to modify most slot toasters (all the ones we've seen) to output toast that has a shroud of turin-style jesus silhouette toasted on it. Toasters work mostly through radiation so all the insert is doing is placing certain areas of the toast in the shadows. This kit requires modification of your toaster and therefore a bit of danger. Lets all be nice. We ask that you be careful and responsible for your own actions. It's a pretty good policy to avoid sticking metal things in your toaster! But if you must, then this kit is for you!
Here is an instructional video so you can see exactly what you are getting into. Still want one? Then order now!
Here is a photo set of toaster development, includes some hi-res press photos.

That said, being nice is usually a good idea. The web has quite a memory.
