I mean, we all know he's a robot, a bending unit, but throughout the series he also serves many other functions. I wanted to make a list of all his uses. I'll start it off:
-Bender (Prior to SP3k, also in Bendless love and other episodes)
-Storage space [his chest cavity](many episodes)
-Camera [Video and Still](When Aliens Attack)
-Popcorn maker/Butter Dispenser (Fear of a Bot Planet)
-Beer Tap (Hell is Other Robots)
-Projector (Crimes of the Hot)

remember to include what episode(s) that is from.

As a matter of fact, prior to my Hard drive crashing, i was half-way through a list of this very thing... I only ever got through the first season... Also on the list were the things Bender has pulled out of his chest cabinet.

I'll pitch in eventually... when i get my damn videos back...

a bender unit is simply a robot with endless functions the mind can come up with for comedy reactions from the viewers....or so ive concluded.

He is also a whole set of tools, as demonstrated in "Less Than Hero", when he was used by Leela and Fry to put together swedish furniture.

He, Robot.

good job, everyone!
another idea of mine:
-Answering Machine (KGKUAN)

also, try to keep this limited to specific function of his body as a robot. for example:
unicyclist isn't a function, it's just something he's good at.
same with god/world. he's only a god/world because he happened to "acquire" a race of tiny humanoid beings.

i'm not just trying to make the 2 people who suggested these feel bad or anything, they just seemed like good examples (don't hurt me!)

With all that firey burping he does, he could make a very nifty flamethrower.

Would that be an actual function though? Or just a side affect?

It's just a side affect of all the drinking he does. But it could be used in a bad situation like if the P.E gang are about to be attacked by some creature, Bender could puul out a bottle of beer, drink it and burp out a huge fire out of his mouth.

At any rate, he plugs a TV into his shiny metal ass in one episode  smile

Retractable neck?? Is that something he is? I thought we were only discussing what he as a whole can be used for. If we're talking all the functions, then... *phew!*
