Robot Arms Apartments (appearing as "Robot Arms Apts." in neon lights on its front) in New New York is an apartment building constructed purposely for robots. Robot apartments generally consist of a small room of two cubic metres, wherein the robot lives and sleeps.
The apartments are also equipped with a closet, which is far larger than the apartment itself. Some robots, however, seem to make use of the closet's large size for living in it as well. Bender Bending Rodríguez and Philip J. Fry live in apartment number 00100100, with Fry in the closet, and Bender in the actual apartment, though, as time progresses, Bender seems to have made further and further usage of the closet.
- There is a Cash Register Testing Facility on the first floor of the building.
- The room numbers seen are 8 digits that are either 0 or 1, which means the room numbers are in binary. 8 bits forms 1 byte and can go from 0 to 255 in decimal, so there are at the most 255 rooms. Given the size of the hallways shown, it's possible that apartments are numbered starting from 1 (or 0, as the case may be) on each floor.
- Bender's room number, 00100100, is 36 in binary – which is also the ASCII code for a dollar sign. Bender lives in apartment $.
