Times Futurama Weirdly Predicted The Future

List Rules
Vote up the most uncanny cases of things happening on Futurama before they actually happened in real life.

Futurama is one of the most beloved shows (animated or otherwise) you'll find on television. Not only was it hysterical, it was an exceptionally intelligent show that looked deep into our future (all the way to the year 3000) and painted a picture of reality that eventually came true. Seriously, in addition to having jokes you need to be a genius to understand, Futurama predicted the future. Sure, we haven't colonized Pluto, fought a malevolent robot Santa, or mastered interstellar travel yet, but there are several pieces of technology present in the show that found their way into our lives. And really, we all know that an evil Santa robot is just a matter of time. 

The simple fact is, some Futurama jokes came true. The way humanity perceives the world, current events, and even video games all changed by the time Fry moved into the distant future... we just didn't realize how quickly those changes would come. While most people are aware of all the Simpsons jokes that predicted the future, they're probably not familiar with all of the insane Futurama predictions that really happened.
