Adam Savage and Simone Giertz Make a Popcorn Machine!

This very special One Day Build is an international collaboration with the newest member of the Tested family! Simone Giertz is an amazing maker who builds mesmerizing robots. To build her latest machine, she chats with Adam from her home in Sweden to design a mechanism to deploy popcorn from a helmet. Adam builds some parts in the cave using his trusty vacuum-form machine! Watch the popcorn machine at work here: Find more of Simone's robots here!

TacoMooses: Totally not sponsored by skype

Josh S5: I'm gonna go to church

Torsten Adair: I was disappointed that you didn't place an air popper on top of the helmet!

Soapygold: this is the dumbest thing i've ever seen and i adore and treasure it

Canzandridas Joe: With better door mechanism and proper control on the timing... This could work wonderfully

Jeremy Davis: 2:20 No, Adam, that's not the Venturi effect, that is just a vacuum cleaner.

If the air leaving one side of the tube sucks popcorn from the other side of the tube, you just described a vacuum cleaner. If the air is blown across the tube opening, thus causing a low pressure area on the opening (as velocity goes up, pressure goes down by conservation of energy/Bernoulli) which then causes an air stream through the tube, then that's the venturi. The difference is that the airflow from the air stream, and the air flow through the popcorn tube are two totally separate air streams where the first causes the second due to the previously described pressure change.

Andrew Ender Frost: Adam's part was so much like an ASMR.

A COW SAYS:: Wait ppl actually eat hand fulls o popcorn in public. I mean in the comfort of your own home by all means but damn. Must be the canadien in me. One or two kernels at a time kinda cow.

ljacobslv: That's the most beautiful machine ever. It's perfect, don't change anything.

004licencetochill: Everytime he says the word "pivot" I just think about Ross Geller.

Mr B: How did we get from air venturi delivered popcorn, to weird hand vacuum-formed monstrosities, which only purpose can be to ruin the "hole in the bottom om my popcorn container" "prank", you played on your highschool date?

pr epstein: WTF?

Ricardo Porto: Oh, dear! There's no betterway to start a friday night. This is the most fricking awesome thing, and could only come from two brilliant minds. Cool as hell!

HMan: Use Peltier elements! One side hot to pop a few grains of corn at a time, that eject into the tube, the other side cold to keep your drink cold.

DairDevil 27: Adam plz clean your nails

Hamish Wilkin: Di Is cool

Pineapple Lover: I thought "why is my discord making that antique voip noise?"

Kate Bryant: 10:42 I love when creators have that "Aha!" moment

Plum_ Pie: fucking i checked my skype XD
