A net, for those of you who are interested, is a flat shape
that can be folded up to make a polyhedron. For instance,
a large equilateral triangle, divided into four smaller
equilateral triangles, is a net of the tetrahedron.
Likewise, six squares arranged in a cross is a net of the
toast. The idea is very simple. The toastnet device is
basically a cookie-cutter, but in addition it has blades
which are blunt and not quite flush with the other edges.
When pressed firmly onto a piece of toast, it cuts out the
net of a cube (or tetrahedron, or other polyhedron of your
choice), and also makes creases for the fold-lines.
Once cut in this way, the toast can be folded to make a
perfect cube or other shape, within which can be placed a
healthy dollop of butter and a spoonful of jam before the
final flap is closed.

have the necessary rigidity.

a sufficiently strong hinge.

(that is, if they're not cooked to "crispy" - it may be delicious, but
causes structural failures)
