Futurama In 3D Is Absolutely Stunning

Whoa. Artist Alexy Zakharov re-imagined the world of Futurama in 3D and transformed a flat cartoon into a completely stunning vista. It makes me want to watch a movie version of Futurama, set in this world, right now. Hell, it makes me want to cryogenically freeze myself so I can live in this world when I wake up.


Spot (Almost) Every Futurama Character Ever In This Awesome Illustration

I’m used to seeing images like this based on The Simpsons, but after seven seasons of consistent comedy genius, I believe that Matt Groening’s second show, Futurama, has absolutely earned the right to one of these awesome ‘every character from the show in one massive image’ things.


The Maths Hidden In Futurama

You might just watch Futurama and chuckle deeply to yourself — as you should! — but if you study it a little more closely, you’ll find that it’s stuffed full of numbers and maths.


Best Guess At Elon Musk's Hyperloop Design, Now In Excruciating Detail

You might remember that a couple of weeks ago, Elon Musk made otherwise random guy John Gardi Twitter-famous by proclaiming that Gardi had a pretty good guess at how Musk’s crazy-sounding Hyperloop transit concept was going to work.

Waking Up To The Future: The Cool World Of Cryogenic Stasis

I’ve always thought as a hardcore technology addict that I was born in the wrong era. I was born in 1988, and based on the average life expectancy (assuming nothing goes awry before then), I’ll live until the year 2067. Not a bad innings, but there’s still so much awesome stuff I’ll miss after I die, and that got me thinking. What if I didn’t die? What if I could preserve myself and return when technology truly is amazing? Turns out I can. It’s called cryonics, and it’s here now.


Futurama's Bender Should Be Included In Every Classic Board Game

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 loveable robot scamp.


Geekiest Marriage Proposal Yet: Binary, Bender Mask, Flying RC Shark

Raising the bar on nerdy wedding proposals, YouTuber doctorpappa (possibly not a real doctor) decided to ask his girlfriend to marry him by donning a paper-mache Futurama Bender mask, and popping the question in binary.


What Do Isaac Asimov And Dr Zoidberg Have In Common?

Inspired by Arthur C. Clarke’s eery ability to predict the future, I went lurking around YouTube to see if I could find similar pronouncements from one of the other greats of science fiction, Isaac Asimov. I failed in that task, but discovered something that ties Asimov directly into Futurama.
