Brooklyn based Bjorn Qorn is making popcorn in the most spectacular way – using nothing but the sun. Gigantic reflectors collect the sun’s rays and focuses them onto a kettle of corn kernels, creating a totally unique sun-popped popcorn. The company is a test implementation of a new technique to build cheap solar mirrors.
