Here's a little something I'm working on for Farnsworth.tk, It's supposed to be a study about the Professor's work and I would like you to:

  • Correct me if I wrote anything stupid or something that won't work.
  • If you have any theories of your own that you think might add up and why.
  • Be a spelling & grammar -nazi.
  • Add any info you can about any of the inventions.
  • Complain about how silly this is.
  • [/i]

    Remember that I have left out somethings that we see him do because they're not his inventions. Stuff like the Emotion chip in "ISTE" and The Gravity pump in "TKOS" to name two.

And now the study:

Planet Express ship:

The ship was designed by Professor Farnsworth because naturally the Professor didn’t invent Spaceships. Using the dark matter engines “Invented” by Farnsworth it allows the PE ship to travel between galaxies in mere hours. What makes his engines truly remarkable is the afterburner which delivers 200% fuel efficiency.

The PE ship can do 99% light speed but the engines don’t move the ship at all but they move the universe around it.

The ship runs on Dark matter and coke-syrup.

The ship comes with 8 – 9 torpedoes, a laser turret and in “Godfellas” Fry uses some sort of arcade machine to shot and destroy a ship even though we don’t see any laser beams. This could be some sort of power charge that releases and then destroys the enemy ship from inside. How this would work I have no clue.

As all standard ships the PE-ship also features such important parts as the L-unit and the energymotron. Also features a Coffeemaker and a “dark matter reactor”.

The ship contains rooms such as a:
bathroom, bridge, crew quarters, Emergency supplies room, brain room, vending room,  “Laundry brig”, cargo room and a few more.

For blueprints visit Amywong.com.ar or click Here.

In comic nr 11 the ship also has a library which we’ve never seen in the series. That’s obviously a plot saver more than anything serious.

Death Clock:

The death clock can calculate how long you have left to live. Of course it can’t take the unpredictable into calculation such as accidents or car crashes. It can’t either take into calculation if you would get a higher dose of radiation for some time although it’s not impossible that it can calculate your remaining lifespan by calculating such values as the doses of radiation you have gotten and if you are a victim to second hand smoke.

If you were to input such values as what you eat each day and the dose of radiation and smoke you will suffer victim to it could be possible to get a value not to far away from the actual date of your death. But then you would have to input your data almost every day if something unexpected happens such as heavy blood loss or drinking.

The death clock is a stupid invention that is to be considered a joke.

Smell-o-scope:


The idea behind the smell-o-scope is that in the same way a telescope lets us see distant object the Smell-o-scope will allow us the smell distant objects. The purpose of this is totally unknown since odours are made out of particles that can’t travel through the vacuum of space.
The Target consumer would have to be some sort of mad man.

The Smell-o-scope consists of a lens, a stench coil, lots of metal and other parts which are unknown. The Smell-o-scope also features a Funk-o-meter which grades the stenches foulness.

 Farnsworth says “The odour travels into the lens...” If that is the case then you don’t smell odours from far away but just enhanced odours that are all around you but to faint to pick up.

So how did he smell Jupiter and Saturn then? Truth is I have no idea. If the odour has to pass through the lens then the smell-o-scope has to have some sort of magnetism that draws odour particles to it and into the lens. But that’s impossible since as said before: odours can’t travel through the vacuum of space.

Therefore we can conclude that the Smell-o-scope must have a built in function which can absorb the particles from the atmospheres of the planets or comets you are sniffing and get them back to the lens unharmed. Highly unbelievable but it seems Farnsworth found a way.

Günther’s hat:

Günther is a monkey who thanks the hat the Professor made him is more intelligent than other monkeys.

To quote the Professor “Günther’s intelligence lies in his electronium hat which harnesses the power of sunspots to produce cognitive radiation.”

That means that the Professor must have found a way to produce cognitive thinking into a radiation which the monkey brain can absorb. Exactly how the hat can do this is 31st century knowledge and we wouldn’t be able to comprehend it if it was written in a book entitled “Monkey hats for dummies”.

Universal Translator:

The universal translator is one of the Professors less successful inventions. The universal translator only translates English to French. French I a dead language and isn’t spoken on Earth anymore.

This is impossible. You can’t translate something into a language that doesn’t exist anymore. The machine has to have some chart or diagram in its program that knows what word shall be translated into what. And since no one on Earth knows this language such a program cannot exist.

Mutant Atomic Supermen:

It seems that Farnsworth has somehow acquired some babies possibly orphans, clones or most likely a fertilized egg or fetus and then re-sequenced or tempered with their DNA. Then to speed up the growth of the babies he feed them time altering chronotons. Voila!

Round Yellow Doomsday Device:

This sucker is powerful enough to create an implosion big enough to take out 134 stars and the nebula that created them by creating a black hole/quasar or something.

I don’t know how he did it, maybe he just killed one star to make a black hole that then swallowed all the others, but since we didn’t see any red giants, supernovas, white dwarfs or anything that indicates the death of a star we may presume that isn’t the case.

It looked like a controlled implosion that stopped before it swallowed the whole universe or maybe it was just a mini black hole, just add water.

I honestly have no idea how it works.

Reversed fossilisation machine thingy and process:

“In regular fossilisation flesh and bone turn to minerals. Realizing that, it was an easy matter to reverse the process.” – Farnsworth in Aoi2.

This suggests that he found a way to turn metal, wires and such into flesh and intestines. Thank god it only was an alternate vision.

Alien cross-species genetic analyzer:

This machine is built for what it’s named after, to determine who is the father/mother/man-momma to an alien baby or child.

It does this by spinning the subjects in a high speed centrifuge separating out any of the ones that isn’t the mother/father.

I think that this works like a normal fatherhood test except it involves aliens and high speed centrifuges.

The Nose making machine:

This machine makes glow in the dark noses. I don’t think anyone knows how to make glow in the dark noses...

The machine is also good at analyzing things such as papers and such. Also seems to be some kind of worthless translator.

Modern Robots:

Farnsworth made the first sporty utility robot. Before that robots were stiff and uptight. To achieve this he had to sacrifice fuel efficiency and so robots are now polluting machines.

For more on Robot technology click here

Parallel universe in a box machine:

This machine creates alternate or parallel universes that all have some slight difference. If anyone knows how do create a universe in a box you are welcome to send in any theories.

Farnsworth didn't invent the tether. Especially since it belonged to his grandmother.

Farnsworth didn't invent that. He programmed an invention that already exists programmed in his voice.

No, but that's never stopped me before.   tongue  So, with that in mind:

You, um... insert the pill.  It slowly releases chemicals which alters your body's density*, making you more resistant to pressure.  However, if exposed to these chemicals for too long, your body will permanintly alter, and you will have to stay in an area with higher pressure (as when the professor warned Fry if he stays under water for too long he'll never be able to return.)

*I have a very basic understanding of science, so if "density" is the improper term, fell free to replace it with the correct one.

"The Birdbot Of Ice-Catraz"

The fing-longer is most likely not invented by Farnsworth, but by someone else. The evidence is in AOI I. How could Farnsworth ask the question "What-If I had invented the fing-longer?" if there didn't exist such a product? He had to know about it previously, otherwise he wouldn't know about it. (cunfused yet   wink ) If there didn't exist a fing-longer prior to AOI I, Farnsworth invented it the very instant he said "What-If I had invented the fing-longer?" Farnsowrth just wish he was the one that had invented it, probably for all the money the sales generated. Later he actually bought a fing-longer.

I always thought that becuase he was using the finglonger in TBOIC, it meant that what the Professor saw in the What-If Machine actually happened, and thats why the Professor had to repair the What-If Machine at the beginning of AOI2.

      No, it's like this:

      If there didn't exist a product called the fing-longer prior to AOI I:

        Farnsworth turn on the machine.
        Asks "What-if I had invented the fing-longer?"
        Because noone have invented a fing-longer before, and Farnsworth just formulated the idea, concept and design, he invented it at that very moment. Thus everything in AOI I would happen in the show, and not just as an What-if.

      If there did exist a fing-longer in retail-sale before AOI I:

        Farnsworth is jealous of who-ever invented the fing-longer (probably for prestige or the money)
        He turn on the What-if machine to see what would had happened if had invented the fing-longer
        Events of AOI I happen as a what'if

      I'm convinced that it was the second option we saw. I can't take full credit for this theaory, I read something along those lines here on PEEL many years ago, but forgot who the original author was.

      1. Yes, that was a crazy experiment but I don't know what I would write other than that he did it.

      Quote
      Pressure Pill:
      The pressure pill is a suppository. You insert the pill. It slowly releases chemicals which alters your body's density, thickens your bones and skin thus making you more resistant to pressure. You will feel and have the same density and such as the one of metal or possibly dolomite. The pressure pills seems to be designed in a way that when you are submitted to great pressure you adapt to it and then when you get back to normal pressure and gravity the effect of the pill wear of. However, if exposed to these chemicals for too long, your body will permanintly alter, and you will have to stay in an area with higher pressure (as when the professor warned Fry if he stays under water for too long he'll never be able to return.)

      By boingo2000 and then some stuff added by me. Please disagree and/or correct something.

       
      Quote
      Who-ask-machine:
      The Who-ask-machine is built to decide who will get to ask a question to the What-if-machine.

      The who-ask-machine seems to have some built in readers and motion detectors that can read who are present. Then it, either randomly or not, decides who will get to ask the What-if-machine a question.

      The machine also seems to have a function to retract its first choiche and then choose another. This function seems to be triggred by the satisfaction and/or enthusiasm of its first chice. If the first choice gets too excited the machine automatically replaces the first choiche with its second choiche.

      I don't know how to spell choiche. Please disagree and/or add something, possibly your own theory.

      - - -
      The What-If Machine
      The What-If Machine, when posed a "What if" question, generates a video simulation of what would happen, more commonly known as a 'Tale Of Interest'.

      There are several ways of generating a response from the machine, including winding a handle, pushing the left front button, pulling a string, burning wood to produce smoke, and pulling down a leaver.

      We don't know how this invention actually works, but (my theory is) it seems to read the questioner's mind so that it knows what's happened in real life, and is able to make a simulation, using that information, that answers the what if question.

      For the Planet Express Ship, you should mention that it has artificial intelligence, and is able to function as an independent being, as it does in "Love and Rocket."

      Also, it was made using various lengths of wire.

      That's how "death clocks" work nowadays.  I would imagine that Farnsworth's operates on at least slightly more advanced technology.  We really have no way of knowing how accurate it is, though.

      If he dreamed about it he did invent it, and didn't have to ask the What-If machine what would happen if he invented it. But he did ask the What-If machine, so he didn't invent it. And if he didn't invent it, he could ask the What-If machine what would have happened if he had invented it, and the Universe wouldn't be destroyed through at time-space paradox.

      No, what I meant was that it has to read the questioner's mind to generate an answer. If you take Fry's question in AOI1, how would the What-If Machine know so much about 20th/21st century when everybody in the 31st century knows next to nothing?

      That's only one point.
      It still
      • is portable
      • is in the form of a torch
      • can make humans sterile by pointing at them once

      But what if he dreamed about it, but instead built something else or couldn't get the right materials. Therefore he asked the What-If Machine what would have happened if he had invented it, out of curiosity or something.

      EDIT: Teral and others, don't reply to the finglonger here, goto this thread.

      1. Do you know for a fact that he invented the portable X-ray ?
      2. It's the form of a flashlight.
      3. That's a side effect.

      I need a second opinion on both this and on the What-if-machine.
