Popcorn lovers have always had one disadvantage. Whatever they’re doing – driving, playing video games or working – they always have to stop what they’re doing to dive for their favorite snack. The Popinator could be an elegant and fun solution.
The Popinator is an automated popcorn-shooting device. Created by snack maker, Popcorn Indiana, it uses a binaural microphone system – which is similar to how we hear things – and when it “hears” the word “pop”, it launches a popped piece of popcorn through the air, It pinpoints where the sound came from and a small barrel flips the popcorn so that you can catch it in your mouth.
Popcorn Indiana employees have been enjoying the Popinator in meetings and break rooms around their office, Unfortunately, this cool sounding product isn’t available to consumers, so we’ll just have to keep eating popcorn the old-fashioned way. But imagine the fun it could bring to enjoying an old favorite if you did have one!
