Some steampunks found a way to use twitter to make them snacks, so break out the #popcorn hashtag, they’re probably getting pretty hungry after building this thing.
Fast forward to about 1:22 for actual footage of the machine and to skip some of the cheesy bits (not the good kind).
Basically, each time the machine’s software spots the #popcorn hashtag, it starts up. A belt turns a screw which moves the unpopped kernels into the hot maw of the popcorn machine.
Tell me when they make a steak-making machine, I’ll get #steak trending all by myself.
