Addicted Toasters (see the project website) are toasters that love to be used, toasters with agency and desires, toasters that get jealous of other toasters that are appreciated more. Addicted Toasters, which are connected to each other via the internet, don't have owners but they do know how their fellow Toasters are faring. If you don't use an Addicted Toaster enough, it will try to get itself transported to someone else that makes more toast.
Addicted Toasters were developed during an internship (October 2011 - May 2012) by Simone Rebaudengo as part of his MSc in Design for Interaction at TU Delft University in the Netherlands. See more information on the project blog: http://designedaddictions.tumblr.com/.
