You’re on the couch watching a movie and you need a snack but can’t be bothered getting off the couch. If you’ve got the Popinator from Popcorn Indiana then you can snack without moving or even having to dig your hands into a bowl or bag . By saying the word “Pop” , the kernel cannon will shoot popcorn right at you. The cannon is voice-activated. Using a set of binaural microphones, it can establish parameters such as direction and distance to “accurately” shoot that popcorn kernel right into your mouth up to 15 feet away. It’s still only a concept, but looks like it could be a bit of fun if it ever goes into production.
