That's it. The machines have won. We humbly bow down to the glory of this machine that can feed us. The Popinator is a "fully automated, voice-activated, popcorn launching machine." The company Popcorn Indiana created a machine that tosses a piece of popcorn at your mouth every time you say "pop." Popcorn Indiana writes:

We are constantly coming up with new flavors, new packaging, and new innovations for popcorn. However, the one thing that never changes about popcorn is the way we eat it. Well, what if there was a way to change the way people eat popcorn by making it more fun?

It's pretty accurate, too, although the aerodynamics of each piece of popcorn are different, so it's not landing on your tongue every time. It's not for sale yet, but mommy, I want one for Christmas. Watch it in action below.
