When I was a little girl in the 1980s, I was reasonably sure that by now we’d have shuttle services to the moon and a real live version of the hoverboard from Back To The Future Part 2.


But, in a twist that reminds us that fake futures are never half as bizarre as the real future, we get the Sushi Popper instead.  Yes, like a cross between a Pez dispenser and one of those Push-Up Pops I was so fond of, back in those halcyon days, the Sushi Popper is a little cardboard tube that you push up from the bottom to deliver slices of California roll (or whatever) directly to your quivering lips.  Soy sauce is supplied in another little tube.  The delivery system for pickled ginger and/or wasabi isn’t mentioned, but my guess would be food pills, or maybe a cunning little aerosol squirt.  Just kidding!  I think.
