#TBT Meets Robotic Popcorn Maker Powered By Twitter

Who remembers, back in 2010, when two men created 'Popcorn Tweets' as their entry for a Fireworks Popcorn 'Creative Pop 2010' competition?

In case you haven't seen it, Justin Goeres and David Britt built a Twitter powered robot that was able to serve up a batch of Popcorn every time someone incorporated '#popcorn' in their tweet! As their viral Youtube video says they were "Introducing a machine that makes popcorn...one tweet at a time".

Admittedly, I don't remember knowing about this masterpiece back then, but when I was browsing the web for popcorn related stories I was thrilled to come across this gem! Who would have thought a tweet could prove to be so tasty?!

Go ahead and watch the video for yourself - you're in for a treat! www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HsE6tkWCzM
