Real ones!

Check it out! How long before they become commonplace? I mean, integrate communications (i.e., a phone) and some basic apps (e.g., Tetris), and you'd have a "thing" on your wrist. --Buddy 05:57, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

That does make me want to get one. They look so cool. I want a "wrist thingy"!--My leg feels funny! 07:18, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
The first "similar post" has Fallout 3 in it. That doesn't surprise me.-- -awedfrgt: possibly the biggest AFI/Futurama fan/ranter on the internet. 23:41, 7 June 2010 (CEST)

It is absolutely absurd for this page to be about the thing on Leela's wrist. The title of the page is fitting with the picture, as they are both referring specifically to the wristlojackimator itself. The name itself should have been enough of a clue for this, as LoJack is used for locating lost objects, e.g. cars. Naming the entire contraption after just one of its many components simply for lack of a better name is embarrassing to us as a fanatical community. Honestly, I'd be happier with Pip-Boy. If it doesn't have a name and The Thing (Leela Wears On Her Wrist) is for some reason unacceptable, then make up a name! I'm all for just calling it That Thing or something similar, as the humor surrounding the device comes from it NOT having a name. All I'm saying is the device itself deserves a separate page from the Wristlojackimator.--User:Pierresauce 00:56, 29 September 2011 (MST)

Well, it can't be "That Thing (Leela Wears on Her Wrist)" because she's not the only one that has one. It has this name because it is the only time she or anyone has ever referred to it by anything resembling a proper name. I could understand moving it to a page with a more generic name, but this has been its name for years, so we'd need several members to approve that sort of thing. It's sort of ingrained now. And a new name would have to be settled upon. And what's a Pip-Boy? --Buddy 09:07, 29 September 2011 (CEST)
