Sorry, but can we rename this to "Cryotube"? DannyJC13 (talk) 21:59, 23 December 2011 (CET)

Is there an actual name for the apparatus? I mean, does anyone actually call it a cryotube (or, for that matter, a cryogenic freezing chamber)? "Cryotube" would be easier to type and remember, but I'm wondering if there's already a name for it. -- DeepSpaceHomer (talk) 23:15, 23 December 2011 (CET)
They are usually called cryotubes... Plus, Cryogenic Freezing makes no sense, Cryo means cold, it wouldn't be a Cryogenic Heating chamber... DannyJC13 (talk) 23:53, 23 December 2011 (CET)
I did a search for "cryotube" and couldn't find any actual mention in the show, except for what people have labelled them in transcripts. That being said, I'd have no objections about moving it to "Cryotube". -- DeepSpaceHomer (talk) 00:11, 24 December 2011 (CET)
Hang on, the transcript for "Cyber House Rules" says that a newspaper clipping on Bender's door calls it a "Cryo-Tube". That should probably be the article title; unfortunately, I can't move it there because the page already exists as a redirect. If it were to be moved, it'd have to be by an administrator. -- DeepSpaceHomer (talk) 00:15, 24 December 2011 (CET)
"Cryogenic Freezing makes no sense"? Tell that to the 92,000 google results for the phrase, it's just redundant, like "ATM machine", . As it turns out the real-life equivalent is called a "cryogenic freezer". Regardless, I just reviewed my disc of the aforementioned episode. Looks like we should move it, given this name doesn't actually appear in the episodes. - Quolnok (talk) 03:20, 24 December 2011 (CET)
Thanks guys, also, Quolnok, do we actually see the tubes in Steampunk'd? DannyJC13 (talk) 12:12, 24 December 2011 (CET)
Yes, although it was probably a fake one. - Quolnok (talk) 15:22, 25 December 2011 (CET)
