And if your concern is that the popcorn will sail rapid fire at your face, never fear -- the Popinator is voice activated, so it only launches when you give the go-ahead.
As if it couldn't get any cooler, the shooter contraption can pivot to locate your voice across the room, so there's little room for launching error.
Alas, it's only a pipedream (pop dream?) for now, conceived by the folks at Popcorn Indiana, which makes some pretty kick-ass bagged popcorn.
The company has dubbed the Popinator the "world's first automated voice activated popcorn shooter," with electrical engineer Ted explaining, "Every piece of popcorn is different -- different shapes and sizes, different aerodynamic properties, basically."

He adds, "When you're shooting a piece of popcorn, there's only so accurate you can get it, You might have to maneuver a little bit to catch it, but that's really just part of the fun."
A sales representative for the company tells Mashable that, for now, the Popinator is just a prototype and is in the planning stages.
