Single Kernel Popcorn Popper: The Opposite of Jiffy Pop

 |  |  |  |  |  November 21, 2012


I’ve seen some strange inventions over the years, but this might be one of the strangest. It’s a special device that’s designed to pop popcorn – one kernel at a time.

The Oncle Sam popper was created for ECAL’s Low-Tech Factory show – the same exhibit that brought us the Rocking-Knit Chair. Students Laurent Beirnaert, Pierre Bouvier and Paul Tubiana designed this contraption that individually pops kernels of corn to perfection. Just load up the dispensers with popcorn, oil and salt, light the flame, and turn the crank, and you’ll have a big bowl of popcorn just in time for the movie to be over. Here’s a video of the exciting popping process, in case you can’t visualize that.

It’s all rather ridiculous, I suppose, but after finding out how many calories movie theater popcorn has, it does make me think this might be a little bit more of a healthy alternative.
