Bubble Wrap Diagnostics

know your bubble wrap
  1. Snappers - these are the good ones - fairly easy to pop, and loud. (fig. 1)
  2. Hardcores - these seem to flatten yet don't pop without Herculean effort.
  3. Duds - these just flatten with a disappointing  and unfulfilling 'fffssssss' sound.
  4. Buddy Bubbles - these reinflate a neighboring 'buddy' bubble when squeezed. See a small video demonstration.
  5. ABP - Already Been Popped. These come in 2 categories:
    • flat, wilted and obvious ones (fig. 2)
    • deceptively rounded and full-looking ones
  6. Edges / Partials - these are the bubbles at the edges which are 1-99% intact, having been cut when the sheet was cut.
  7. the space between the bubbles
