Pop Culture- Bubble Wrap Turns 50

26 01 10 - 07:17

The techniques may vary, but it will always be a therapeutic product for a lot of us. From the Zen-like satisfaction of going POP, POP, POP & crushing the air out of each individual bubble, to the staccato blast of POPS heard as a 6 year old dances on the stuff. It's all good fun! In fact there's even an electronic key-fob toy for adults!

What was originally envisioned as a way to make padded wall paper has permeated almost every corner of our lives. You'll find the stuff protecting the contents of many items that show up in your daily mail. You see it in adverts, like the pic above or in fashion as seen below. Your wife likes to lay it out in the hallway for those nights you come home late and attempt to tip-toe into the house undetected. Your kids love to idle away bits of time with sheets of this ubiquitous product.

Who knows what uses we'll find for it in another 50 years...

The Nexus 6 is the biggest sinner in this regard and has a tendency to slightly distort colours, particularly whites, when viewed from the side, and can push reds far more than it should
