Look, drinking all day is not healthy. But what if you and the missus signed up for a nine-hour Napa County wine tour, and you want to get your money’s worth? Or maybe you’re hitting your bachelor pal’s BBQ, and the action starts at noon. Or, maybe, what the hell, you just want to go all out on a hot summer day. This…
If Futurama has taught me anything, it's that one day factory robots will wander the streets drinking, swearing, and occasionally bending pieces of metal for a living. But that's still a long ways off, as this video of a comparatively primitive pipe-bending bot illustrates.
The show hasn't quite been the same since it returned from cancellation, but we'll always have a soft spot for Futurama in our hearts, particularly Bender. Which is why we're completely in love with this custom-made Operation game featuring the lovable robot scamp.
At first I thought this just was pretty great Futurama - Gears of War mash-up Then Jason told me the same guy provided the voice for both Bender and Marcus Fenix, and my world collapsed in on itself.
I just bombarded Futurama's co-creator David X. Cohen with some very important questions, including what he would name his Roomba, why he's not afraid of robots and what Futurama's chances are for renewal. (Spoiler: 50/50.)
Reader Matt heard my pleas when I saw the Mr. Burns webcam and decided to take it upon himself to create a one of a kind Bender webcam from scratch. Well, not exactly from scratch—he used a pre-made Bender and a pre-made Creative Live! Video cam—but he did somehow shove the two together to make one insanely great…
Holy crap! The Age of The Machines is nigh: a bunch of scientists in Switzerland have created learning robots that can lie to each other. Okay, so they don't swill beer or put bends in girders—they just communicate to each other with benign flashing lights, thank goodness, instead of using lasers to destroy humans:
This life-sized model of Bender hides a secret inside, and it's not a hatred of humanity. No, that's no secret. This Bender is also a beer brewer. And you thought Bender couldn't get any cooler.
The above clip from Bender's Big Score is just a reminder that the Futurama movie's available now! Pick one up at your favorite online store today. We've also got a list of our favorite Futurama gadgets as well, in case you're looking to kill a few minutes before getting off work (and going to buy the Futurama movie).
Here's a longer version of the Comic-Con Futurama teaser. The new DVD is coming Nov 27th and we're just thrilled at the opportunity to be disparaged by robots again.
Bender. Three inches. Head rotates 360 . Bite his tiny, shiny, metal ass and you'll probably break a tooth. He costs $9.99 and you can see him all tucked up in his retro-ish box after the jump. [Think Geek]
Yesterday we showed you HPR-3 Promet Mark II, hailed as the waterproof construction worker of the future. Well, I beg to differ. He's nothing but a Disco stormtrooper who got at three bottles of whisky and a case of Olde Fortran the night before his big debut, as you can see in the three videos after the jump.
Say hello to Kyrre Glette, Jim Tørrenson, Jeff Hawkins and one of your future robot overlords. The first three have developed two different ways to create independent machines. The fourth is just looking to destroy you.
