To my surprise, Futurama’s executive producer David X. Cohen, also the guy that invented Bender, was the co-author of a computer vision paper Feature extraction from faces using deformable templates written by my M.S adviser Alan Yuille. In addition, the paper has 1651 citations and is listed in my most cited computer vision paper list. Apparently you need to publish high quality papers to get into the cartoon industry; this definitely strongly motivated me to continue my research career.

Some guy actually made a bender robot computer case. Pretty cool, but I would prefer a real robot.
