Bubble Wrap

… Bubble Wrap.

Yes, everyone’s favourite executive toy is 50 this month.

Invented by Marc Chavannes and Alfred Fielding in New Jersey in 1960, this “cushioning material” is clearly a very useful product.

It also has a slightly scary fanbase:

  • go here to pop virtual bubbles
  • go to Facebook and browse more than 250 fan pages
  • go to the official web page from manufacturers Sealed Air Corporation (more popping)
  • celebrate Bubble Wrap Appreciation Day on the last Monday in January
  • download one of many iPhone applications such as this one (yet more popping)
