    Distrify unveils the USB Popcorn Popper®.

    The patent-pending invention brings the world’s favorite movie treat to the comfort of VOD, one kernel at a time.

    Distrify co-founder Andy Green was frustrated with the lack of tasty snacks available on his laptop. “While most people’s laptop keyboards are filled with nutritious crumbs, the flavor just isn’t what you want when watching a movie. We wanted a simple way to make popcorn while watching our favorite movies on Distrify,” Green explains. “I realized that the power in a USB port was sufficient to heat a popcorn kernel to a perfect popping temperature.”

    "Since most of our movies are watched via the internet, we’ve always been searching for a way to tap into the most lucrative revenue available from the movie business," says Distrify co-founder Peter Gerard. "Our patented USB Popcorn Popper® is the most efficient way to pop popcorn. We charge movie fans on a per-kernel-popped basis, meaning you are never paying for un-popped kernels at the bottom of your bowl."

    "It’s healthy, too!" adds Green. "When you have to wait for each kernel to pop individually, you are much less likely to overeat."

    The device will go on sale soon from - pricing has not been announced. Distrify plans to release mobile versions designed for iPhone and Android later this year.
