Eating popcorn could become a lot more fun, and a lot more choke-y at the same time. The Popinator is an in-house project from Popcorn, Indiana, a company that sells, well, popcorn. This machine is able to pinpoint your exact location from the sound of your voice using a binaural microphone array, and to shoot a corn projectile into it from up to 15 feet away. It’s. Freaking. Cool.
Although the Popinator is not on the market right now, the company says that if everything lines up, they would definitely like to make it available on the shelves at some point, though for how much and when is unknown.
