|"The Farnsworth Parabox" (4ACV15)
The parallel-universe box or the parabox is a box that was accidentally created by Professor Farnsworth. At first it was going to be thrown into the sun and no-one was allowed to look in it but it was later discovered to have a whole parallel universe inside. Professor Farnsworth in the parallel universe also created a blue box containing our universe. Afterwards more boxes were created containing other parallel universes. The two main boxes were switched so they contained their own universe. The boxes allow a person to reach a parallel universe by entering it, but also show in the parallel universe the effects applied to the box such as shaking, squeezing or destruction. The name is probably a pun of the word paradox and the contraction of words "parallel" and "box".
