This street vendor makes popcorn with an explosive, pressure-cooking, popcorn cannon contraption, a centuries-old method. The video was filmed in Zhengzhou, China, but we’ve watched videos of this in South Korea, too. And of course, Mythbusters has looked into it, video below. Boom!

Related watching: Click to Enlarge: Popcorn, more explosions, and more videos of street vendors, including how this intricately-drawn melted caramel/sugar dragon is made.

Fitt’s Law - “the time required to rapidly move to a target area is a function of the distance to the target and the size of the target”

Hick’s Law - “the time it takes for a person to make a decision as a result of the possible choices he or she has”

Making A Successful Portfolio →


I get a lot of questions about what goes into making a good portfolio, and while there are many different opinions on the subject, Ty Carter (a Visual Development Artist at Blue Sky Studios) has compiled some really useful information about crafting a portfolio on his blog. Definitely worth reading! And I think this topic is going to be a series of discussions on his blog - so follow his tumblr to catch all the useful tips!
