Microwave Popcorn

...I have been snacking too much.

In an attempt to make this happen less (and be more healthy when it happens), I have picked up two new habits.  One is chewing gum.  The other is (light) popcorn.

While making the popcorn today, I wondered: why can't my microwave listen to the popping and just stop when the interval slows to the optimal level?

I imagine detecting each pop is a mechanically trivial task, and timing it shouldn't be much harder.  Of course, there would still be a timer as a fall-back, but... c'mon, why do I have to stick around and listen to my popcorn anymore?  That's so low-tech!
