Popcorn Vacuum   (+3)  [vote for, against]
Handheld vacuum device makes it easier to eat popcorn.

I love popcorn, but it's messy to eat especially when you get to the bottom of the bucket and the pieces are really small and you really can't grab them.

This idea is for a handheld electronic device that gets more popcorn in your mouth and not on the floor. The device would have a handle, and the head would look like a small inverted bowl with holes in it. When you press a little button on the handle, the vacuum starts sucking air in the holes. Put the head of the vacuum to the surface of the fluffy popped corns and the bowl is quickly filled with the buttery crunchy goodness. Release the button when you have the bowl tipped over your mouth and the corn falls in. Mangiare!

I like this, but I thought it was going to be a vacuum popcorn popper that would work without heat.

That's just as halfbaked. Under your reasoning, popcorn would be an excellent commodity in outerspace. An excellent food source for those bacteria used in directed panspermia.

Exactly. It would be utterly amaizeing.

I was expecting a device that harnessed the energy of expanding popcorn to create a vacuum. I am not disappointed, but I am expecting a string of corny puns.

And this from the inventor of the now-deleted Helmet Mounted Popcorn Feeder.
