Walking into the Gus Waldorf’s lab was like walking into the future. Sandy Gomez, science reporter at large, gazed around the science lab stunned by all the curious devices. At last, she found something familiar.
“That’s a toaster, right?” she pointed.
“Don’t be silly,” said Gus. “That’s a Sapornatical Intrepolimator.”
“It’s used to establish quantum entanglement in atomic clouds for FTL communications.”
“Amazing! That could change deep space communications. But over there is a pizza oven, right?”
“Outrageous! No, that’s an Infraticulating Haplunitite. It loosens molecular bonds to ease food reproduction by nano food printers.”
Sandy’s shoulders sagged. It seemed even the familiar wasn’t really what it seemed to be. She actually knew a lot about technology, having a degree from MIT, but in Gus’ lab she felt uneducated.
She pointed up. “So I suppose that’s not a Ceiling Fan.”
“Of course it isn’t. That is a Jambilicktion Cleritomiphilizer.”
“And it’s used for…?”
Gus shrugged. “It moves the air around to keep the lab cool.”
