Check Out This Completely Incredible Popcorn Launcher

Here’s a strange video from Popcorn Indiana, who are apparently a manufacturer of popcorn in the US. The fact that I’ve never heard of them, and neither have the three Americans I just snap-canvassed haven’t either, probably explains why this video needs to exist in the first place.

But, on the surface of things, this clip showcases their invention The Popinator.

And also explains how it works. Sort of.

Yeah, very droll.

Engadget seem to believe this thing is real. It’s my stupidity versus theirs, then. Who’s the stupiderist?

Here’s the latest statement from the company:

All we have to say is: it is a work in progress right now. We certainly hope that one day it will become a commercial project, but as of now there is no shipping date and no price tag. It is purely a fun internal project we are toying with here at Popcorn Indiana. Based on the very positive responses we are getting online, we think this is well worth looking into as a commercial product.

Look for it on shelves just two aisles over from Mattel’s hoverboard, folks.
