Every office meeting should come equipped with the 'Popinator'. This delicious-sounding machine actually responds when you say "Pop!" by shooting a single of piece of popcorn flying into your mouth.



This ingenious design was invented by the folks over at Popcorn Indiana. As explained by the “electrical engineer” in the video above, the machine uses binaural microphones to detect when somebody says “Pop!” and then triangulates their location so it can adjust the popcorn launching mechanism. The result is a machine that is able to to locate your mouth and fire a single kernel of popcorn at it from up to 15 feet away.
