The next time you're serving tacos at a party — or, more likely, planning to scarf down a half-dozen by yourself — there's a new contraption to make the prep much more efficient. Meet Nuni, a toaster that can heat up six tortillas at a time in 60 seconds.

The company that produces Nuni has launched an Indigogo crowdfunding campaign to help ramp up production. As of this posting, 54 backers have contributed $5,128. Not bad, although the campaign's target is a lofty $100,000. Donations are being accepted for 22 more days.

The toaster has five temperature settings, and it can work with corn, flour, and wheat tortillas. Elliott Benitez, founder of the project, says the device is meant to make more cumbersome heating methods a thing of the past and provide "a safer, faster, and more delicious method." If Nuni meets its funding goal and makes it to production, your Tuesday nights will never be the same.
