Popcorn Tweets! The Twitter-powered popcorn machine ** Tech Doc Here: http://tinyurl.com/ni-tech-doc ** By Dave Britt (@_clevermonkey_) and Justin Goeres (@JustinGoeres)

A custom LabVIEW program polls Twitter for any mention of #popcorn, and for each Tweet, activates a LEGO Mindstorms NXT robot to power some Rube Goldberg sort of contraption that makes popcorn one Tweet at a time.

We made this for Fireworks Popcorn's Creative Pop 2010! Contest. [edit: WE WON!] Fireworks Popcorn is http://popcornlovers.com
