    Sampling Gone Wrong: Bubble Wrap Popping Simulator

    Sampling Gone Wrong: A Bubble Wrap Popping Simulator



    Now I am a sampling fanatic and want to democratize sampling. But there reaches a limit where this can go too far.

    Bubble wrap sampling crosses the line.

    With this PutiPuti bubble wrap emulator, the buttons are supposed to emulate the feel of bubble wrap, and when you push one, you hear a popping noise. And every 100 pops, just to reduce the machine gun effect, you may hear a door chime, barking dog,passing gas, or “sexy voice.”

    Some things are best left unsampled. It's the human touch that cannot be reproduced in a satisfying manner... the carress of the finger on those bulbous plasticine sacs and the excitement of those micro-explosions. Part of the experience is the satisfaction that once you’ve popped the last bubble, there’s none left.

    You can buy a PutiPuti in any of 5 colors in September for about $7. Or, you can spend that $7 on something like 30 square feet of the real glorious bubble wrap.

    End of rant.

    I don't see anything wrong with this. Personally I'm thinking of working on a bax of matches that don't light. As you strike one, though, a sample of a match being struck will play, and an LED in the end of the match will flash red.

    I keep a supply of the real thing (now to be known as "bubble wrap classic") on hand just for the popping pleasure.

    What next...

    1) Bubble Wrap Jumbo - A larger device that simulates popping bubble wrap with bigger bubbles.

    2) Bubble Wrap Uno - The biggest of all, which simulates that amazing bubble wrap which consists of one giant bubble.

    Who actually gets payed to come up with these things?

    Exactly!

    What next, William? Telephones without wires?

    Oh, the horror!

    Think of it. People would be wandering around
    talking on them everywhere, all the time. They'd
    cause car accidents and plane crashes because
    no one will look where they're going. Families will
    dissolve, as no one talks face-to-face any longer.
    Public places like supermarkets will resemble
    insane asylums, with hundreds of people walking
    around, apparently talking to thin air!

    Best,

    'Popping' bubbles to treat cancer:

    Scientists at the University of Oxford are trying to harness the energy released when bubbles collapse as a way of killing off cancer cells

    I have a friend whose favorite stress reliever is to pop bubble wrap - the bigger the bubbles, the better. Nothing makes her happier than for us to bring a big new wad of the stuff for her when we visit. She sticks her tongue out a bit and bites it while she goes to town popping the bubbles, her face scrunched up like a naughty child unleashing frustrations by coloring on the wall.

    Something smaller and more compact, less messy - She would enjoy that, and we wouldn't have to save up these ugly big wads of packing material just to keep our friend happy.
