They look like NextStep Computers, the forerunner to my OS.

No, no, no, you have it all wrong. They're big TALL ones.  Seriously, though, there is a thread in the PEEL museum on the subject of the 3D work on Futurama, have you checked that out? There is some pretty good information straight from the horse's mouth, if I recall correctly.

Are you calling Scott Vanzo a horse?  :p

Museum thread about 3d animation and how they integrate this with 2d. Although it doesn't specify the computer they use, he do name the programs: Softimage Toonz for 2D ink&paint/composite, and Alias|Wavefront PowerAnimator and Maya for 3D.

Yeah, him and his horsey horse... face. 

Note: I have never seen Scott Vanzo, and apologise to any horses that may be offended.

Thanks for that link.  I've never seen that thread before.  Interesting stuff.
