    Link: Popping Popcorn With Lasers: Real Genius At Home? - Sure in the movie it was a massive laser on a jet firing down on popcorn in a house but the principle is the same!

    typical hot air popper:Up to 18 cups of gourmet popcorn are popped in less than 2 1/2 minutes (1440 watts)
    approx 2500 kernals per cup... math...
    4.8 joules/kernal
    Ill stick with the hot air popper thanks I-A-B

    @madest, it is done in post production. Tracking software + After Effects to rotate the shot.

    That laser blows. Wicked Lasers are known for underspec lasers and shipping that takes months.
    I have a 2.1W laser that is smaller than that.

    So, basically they`re saying it was a really slow week for submissions and that`s why this got through?
