Nerds with time on their hands: The Popinator

The Popinator prototype – under development at Popcorn Indiana

An article in the Huffington Post food section puts it like this: “The problem with popcorn these days, is that it doesn’t pop directly into your mouth as nature intended.”

No more! Intrepid engineers at Popcorn Indiana have a working prototype of a voice activated popcorn cannon that calculates the trajectory to your mouth and launches a kernel when you say, “Pop.”

I am seriously encouraged by the Popinator.  Who says America has lost its edge?  Creativity, engineering prowess, and humor – a potent combination!

    I think this really defines “Nerd.” These guys had way too much time on their hands. Thanks for the laugh.

    I’m wondering if they will be choking on the legal paperwork that will need to be enclosed with each unit 🙂
