unless you're famous / important enough to end up as a head in a jar or decide to get frozen, you probably won't see the year 3000, thus never be able to compare it with the futurama-vision what the world will be like in (roughly) 1000 years.

what (if anything) that can be seen in futurama do you think will actually exist in the future ?

suicide booths, drinking robots, zoidberg, etc. ???

Well, maybe by 3000 humans would have landed on Mars, and build something there? Not sure about an invasion, we don't even know whether there is anything alive on Mars now.

The tubes will be real, I am sure of it.
I can't see soylent green ever being popular, but bachelor chow would be a great hit, I want some of it now! I doubt there will be loads of aliens around, but the rest should be reasonably accurate, with people doing the same things they do nowadays. I always liked the way that the futurama universe isn't some stupid overly utopian or dark place, as is usually the case in sci-fi.

Concerning the future, seeing as how the whole world recently had a huge boost in technology, coming from computers and the internet (in which I think that these years will be known as the Internet Age), I think upon the first operational Fusion Nuclear reactor is built, and actually works, it's power will cause another massive boost in technology, one which would definately help the entire world.

We could probably land on Mars by the year 3000. The tube system is also possible. As for the drinking robots, we can only hope.

I think they will have Hover Cars in the future. I hope there is Planet Express in the future, that'd be cool!

They would have landed on Mars and built a civilization by the year 3000.The teleportation tubes would be possible to. Hover would be also be possible.

As musch as I don't wanna fight with a fellow Californian, I'd have to disagree with the civilization thing. Just beacuse we land there doesn't mean that we should make a civilization there, just look at the moon. It's closer to earth, but we didn't send people to live there.
Oh course if we could live on Mars I might just go visit.  tongue

i can agree with bachelor chow (mm... salty... i assume) but i doubt the tubes will exist. it seems like it would be too complicated to move individual people in different directions purely by pneumatic pressure.

The Wong family owning half of Mars, or at least some rich bunch investing in land over there.
The whole space travel idea will definitely continue (perhaps even interplanetary delivery services!), seeing as how it's been a pretty big deal to humanity ever since we found out that those shiny things in the sky are other planets.
The giant ball of garbage as well as orbiting cemetaries might be acceptable by then, rather than leaving such things under the ground on our own planet.

Boybands will be extinct and Ocean Rudeness will sweep the countryside, transforming thousands of normally polite sailors, fishermen, and sea-goers into monsters of inacceptable behavior.

all-purpose-spray would be really cool, though it is probably impossible to create.

I read some time ago that in Japan, spray-on tights had been invented. Obviously didn't keep your legs warm, but gave the appearence that you were wearing them...

true. but i'd expect the all-purpose-spray to be literally 'all purpose', so that you can use them for anything.

Screw the theme park on the moon, Whoopwhoopwhoop.  We can make our own!  With hookers, and blackjack.  Better yet, forget the theme park.   big grin

Yeah, but most of us will probably live to see whether we have suicide booths by 2008, and some of us might even find out whether cyborgs really will enslave humanity at some point during this century.

To answer your question, though, I tend to doubt we'll have faster-than-light flight, but really, who knows?  I mean, there's plenty that we take for granted that would have been considered impossible 1000 years ago.  If we ever DO manage to reach faraway worlds and discover new life forms, I doubt they'll be much like Zoidberg or Morbo.

A virtual reality Internet is a possibility, but it probably wouldn't look like the one on the show.

I really don't know enough about artificial intelligence to determine whether sentient robots like Bender would ever be possible.  The question is, would we WANT them to be?

i sure hope that we get in contact with zoidberg-ish aliens, not so sure about morbo though.

concerning robots, i think it's important to distinguish between artificial intelligence (which science focuses on at the moment) and artificial emotions. in my opinion both should be programable in 3000.

ok well for the faster than light ship speed the PE ship's engines push the universe around it, so thats probably very unlikely.  As for the lightsticks the peace patrol have, there available at traget for about fifteen dollars.
