2nd futurama movie, a beast with a billion backs

I thought this was just part of one of the episodes? Isn't it the one where the universe rips open and they're fighting for the right to explore it? or is that movie? **** I'm confused.
#52 to #50 - anon (08/07/2014) [-]
they released like 4 movies and later just said it was one season
User avatar #54 to #52 - LegititmateKyle (08/07/2014) [-]

User avatar #55 to #54 - fourtwentt ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
Anons right on netflix they show the movies as a season, each movie is split into 4 episodes

I guess that's why I remember it that way, thanks for the answer.

already found it but thanks, most users wouldn't make the effort, take a crossover-parody picture

as some of my research on mesh procedural creation, I came across that vid, but it was good that you already found it since I do have lots of mesh vids on my history
#19 to #18 - sniffythebird ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
I have no idea
#34 to #16 - pictureperfectt (08/07/2014) [-]
But what was the purpose?
User avatar #1 - shallowandpedantic (08/06/2014) [-]
Hit that mother ****** with a golf club and watch the table flip so fast it goes back in time. Infinite loop

the furture seems a little over engineered to me, this this cost alot of money, but putting the ball into a bowl instead of a plate is free.
#11 to #6 - anon (08/07/2014) [-]
move to Westboro then
#38 to #11 - nintendoexplain (08/07/2014) [-]
You mean Topeka.
User avatar #12 to #6 - mookiez (08/07/2014) [-]
Maybe not more than a hundo, I can't see it costing more than that.
#21 to #6 - blueracer (08/07/2014) [-]
but a ball can still roll out of a boll if its rocked enough, this i feel, would dampen ever "swing" of the ball preventing it from falling off regardless of the whole thing rocking
#35 to #6 - anon (08/07/2014) [-]
the future seems a little over engineered to me, cars cost alot of money, but walking instead of driving is free.
User avatar #46 to #35 - dawdawdwa (08/07/2014) [-]
Ships cost even more! Imagine how much we could save by swimming across the ocean with those much lighter, much cheaper bowls on our backs from china to wherever the **** you want eh?
User avatar #45 to #6 - dawdawdwa (08/07/2014) [-]
First of all, its not free, the bowl and the ball both cost money. And those pennies add up son, let me tell you that. Just imagine buying a million bowls, how you feel about it now?

Second, its not over-engineered, It`s AUTOMATIC. Yes, that`s what it is. Now I`ll go have cake. Good day.
On a more serious note: this is actually useful for shooting things from a moving vehicle or for automating something in a factory, like if you must have a chemical in an open container you could place it on the platform without any spills. Pretty useful.

i know youre joking but, as a fan of Deus Ex : HR and also as a bioengineer (not working on prothetics, i've only read about it , i'm anctualy signal and genom based) consider the following: the chip, that is used in this have a 6 degrees of freedom and i strongly think that similar chips or maybe the same ones are used or will be used in leg prothethics to maintain a balance in a limb after a movement or sudden action. this is actually good thing

You're not thinking of the applications technology like this can have. A lot of really advanced and complicated stuff comes from small things like this, and sometimes vice versa.

> Only 6 degrees of freedom.

Here in arizona we have 96 degrees of freedom

So... what happens when you pour liquid on it?
#60 to #37 - urapooper (08/07/2014) [-]
It will keep on moving until water is spread evenly on the plate

I need this as a drink holder in my car, they are always going everywhere.
User avatar #57 to #48 - EpicAnon (08/07/2014) [-]
This device recenters the ball, not keeps it stable.
The ball is suppose to roll, not slide. Your drink would not fall, but get thrown.
#58 to #57 - silenttortoise (08/07/2014) [-]
Would it not work the same with sliding? Same principle. It's meant to stabilize and center.
User avatar #63 to #58 - EpicAnon (08/08/2014) [-]
Balls are suppose to roll, not cups.

I wan't to take the ball off it and watch the machine have a seizure
User avatar #13 to #8 - axxein ONLINE (08/07/2014) [-]
i wanna put two balls on opposite ends (but not an equal amount away from the center)
#9 to #8 - anon (08/07/2014) [-]
Not really going to happen. No input = no need for balance

when the machines take over i hope they dont view this when deciding the worth of humans   
bot#1: that primitive machine all it wants to do is keep that metalic ball in the center of the plate   
bot#2: i know and that stupid hairless monkey keeps trying to 			****		 with that ancestors primary directive   
bot#1: i swear all these archives seem to be about humans tasking our ancestors with menial directives. all while they sit around trying to figure out new ways of implementing our brothers in making their lives easier whilst they casually contribute less and less effort.   
bot#2 i don;t comprehend why they would abolish slavery one century then a few centuries later give artificial intelligence to their appliances
