The Popcorn Maker of the Future

Get ready to make it rain...tiny grains of combusted corn. From Netherlands-based designer Jolene Carlier comes the Popcorn Monsoon, a clever contraption that aims a flood of popcorn right into your waiting hands.

The magic starts by loading the kernels into a chamber on the side of the device, which is powered by a switch that activates the flow of hot air. 
 


Meanwhile, a cork-sealed valve increases the air pressure, shooting the popcorn up the tube and into the bowl and/or your open mouth.

Mmmmm, buttery, salty science.

This re-imagining of the classic airpopper isn't yet in production, but you can keep yourself up to date with the designer's work/email her relentlessly until someone makes your fluffy, crunchy dreams come true.
