We have seen the future of the Woot-Off, and we're frightened. We suppose it's our own fault for asking you to Show us something that we'll sell in a Woot-Off five hundred years from now. Hold us now, protect us, as we glimpse at your unsettling visions of a nightmare tomorrow:

First prize - $100
plinth - When Roaches Rule

We hope a lot of cockroaches were harmed in the making of this picture. Click on it for a close-up of the screenshot.


Second prize - $50
majit - Salton Soylent Green Treat Maker

We tell ourselves we won't reward any more Soylent Green references, and then something like this comes along and makes a fool of us once again.

Third prize - $20
Josephus - Woot Water for Wooters

Although he seems a little down about the cataclysmic drought, Dave looks surprisingly comfortable in that keffiyeh.

Honorable Mention

Frankenroc - Holographic Screaming Monkey
Help me, Screaming Monkey. You're my only hope.

greensnake - iPod Femto
It just seems so bulky next to the iPod Zepto.

toby8915 - Sticks and Stones
The cutting edge of 26th-century weaponry.

mwiseman - Hot Watch-on-Watch Action
Make the androgynous future-creature stop staring at us. Click to embiggen.

guiseppi - The Trouble With Nanoprobes
Apparently, the people of the future have forgotten how to design web sites. Click it and it will grow.

faithcoaching - Sol-III's Dairyland
Oh, yeah, we're so sure people will still be saying "thank you" in 500 years.

twallis - Mars Needs Support
It can't be easy to find modelling work when you're hosting a telepathic mutant alien.

Champions' Championship Champion
toby8915 - You Must Be Cloaking

eBay has one for $1391.99! pWn3d!

Win the Monkey Prize once, shame on you. Win it twice, shame on us. Win it three times, shame on the American psychiatric industry. We're cutting you off after this one, hipbabybob. We're sure you possess the "talent" to win many more of these, but it wouldn't be fair to those who don't possess your natural gifts. Click for a larger version, if you must.

Luckily for us, we'll be long dead by the time these worst-case scenarios come to pass. While we're waiting for the sweet release of death, money winners, please email your Paypal info to jtoon@woot.com. Monkey Prize winner, send your mailing address to the same. Honorable Mentioneers may use coupon code HONMEN-FS for free shipping on a future order. Until next time, don't look ahead. The future might be gaining on you.

Nice picks! Congrats, winners. Thought twallis' control top was a shoo-in.

Side note, almost none of the "click for bigger" links work correctly. Almost all point to "http://admin.woot.com/BlogEntry.aspx"..

That's 'modeling', with only one L. As a professional male model I know this. Just had to get you back for correcting my spelling of 'tommorrow' during the trophy contest.

Thx, woot, and congrats to those above. Thought I didn't have much of a chance because a lot of really good and funny
entries were posted this week. I expected other futuristic woot-sites to share top drawer with mwiseman's great mutant site.

And, perhaps the SG reference was 2 old, 2 often overused, much 2 often, but someone had to do it. The woot Salton
seemed, to me, to be suited for the parody.

Kudos to all!

What ever happened to that guy, tgentry? I mean, wow, did he ever disappear from the scene. Talk about your "flash in the pan" chopping careers.

And I really liked his work too.

Well, Plinth ... tgentry's shoes (non-rocketized) are a big fill, but you can do it!

Go gators! Go Hokies!

Congrats winners! I hope I have time next week to come up with a good idea. . . mine this week was okay (with poor implimentation because of less than stellar sources and skills), but based on a tv show, not very origional.

Wow, nice to share the winner's thread with such great entries...and thanks for the kind words, fellow WOOTers.
Thanks, WOOT for the HONMEN-FS -- I'm saving it for a Sexact-500. Maybe a 2-for-Tuesday?

Yikes, save for a few exceptions my picks were a death sentence this week. Congrats to the winners! Great stuff all around.

I'm still going to complain about you winning this week, just for old times sake. I'm thinking 70% b---in' and 30% moanin'.

Good job Plinth and other winners. I'm going steal your line Plinth and say MY STREAK CONTINUES... and continues... and continues. As websorcerer put it, "The creating and posting is fun. It's the implicit rejection that's a bitter pill."

Its only bitter when my husband gets picked, especially if I didn't like his idea. . . then I really know my sense of humor is not inline with the judges and I have a snowballs chance. . .

I get that feeling too, guiseppi! Haha. I really liked yours, and so did a non-wooter I showed it too.

Congrats to the winners and fellow HMs!

Honestly, after I came up with the idea and made it, I checked the boards and found your entry on the first freakin' page, haha. But I figured rather than let that work go to waste, I'd post it anyway. It happens. Let's face it, 'twas an obvious choice if you think about it: holograms... future... screaming monkeys... I'm surprised there weren't more of them.
