Sometimes science comes up with convenient and necessary leaps forward in the world of food technology. Imagine your life without the microwave oven, the refrigerator or even the home coffee maker. Other times, however, science comes up with stuff that makes great water cooler talk but is essentially useless.
Check out this ridiculously convoluted popcorn maker. It slices. It dices. Wait, it does none of that stuff. It just makes popcorn in the coolest, and most inconvenient, way possible. Think of it as the Rube Goldberg machine of popcorn makers. Did we mention it only pops one kernel at a time? If you time it right, you can have a bowl ready a few hours after the movie is finished.
