No. Way.

Design students Laurent Beirnaert, Pierre Bouvier and Paul Tubiana concocted this über-intricate popcorn making machine that — wait for it! — pops one exquisite kernel at a time. Buttered and salted, even. I imagine the commentary is partially about looking differently at a foodstuff that’s created quickly and in abundance and certainly without much thought. Possibly an unintended consequence, while I watched the video, I craved popcorn. (The video features a bunch of really cool student projects. The popcorn machine starts at 4:13.)

Didn’t your mouth water, too?
