It just ocurred to me that that solid metal plate that slides over his eyes has no place to go.

Change places!!

So... this is realistic, down-to-earth show that's totally off the wall and swarming with magic robots?

But with a garage door you see the parts where the material "corners".

Benders eyelids are completely flat.

All it needs is a Speedo Man.

'Praps it is a holographic image. Which would explain his ability to see through it.

It's like a stiff garage door.  It doesn't bend, it just goes back at an angle.

<Bevis>Heh, heh, you said "stiff"</Bevis>

Nope, sorry Rachel_D, but the cover of his eyes goes straight up, no angle.

But all in all, who really cares?  Bender's eyecover doesn't take away the humorossity that is Futurama...  I love making up my own words...

Who says they can't have flexible solid metal in the future?

i say it is flexible metal in the style of a sheet of aluminum foil.  It simply rolls up.  BAM!

No they arent flat. If they is, why can Bender "Zoom in" or what you call it, if they were flat?

We're talking about the eye lid here.  Just making sure you're on the same page.

So let me get this straight, Bender is a magic robot in a realistic down to earth show, and has a wizard in his head. Said wizard has a timeshare apartment in the discworld, and this affects only the small metal plate that covers Benders eyes.

I think that it's probably just a feature of animation, it isn't 100% realistic, and anyways, the metal plate slides down behind the faceguard, meaning that it can probably fit inside his head somewhere WITHOUT bending or folding or rolling.

Nixorbo was right. The future really has no need for corners.

Maybe it's just an holographic projection, and Bender can actually see true it. In "The Problem with Popplers" he took out his eyes when he didn't wanna see "something horrible", insted of closing his eyelids.
