I am Prophet, a warrior in 2047 out to avenge the evil CELL Corporation in post-apocalyptic New York City. I am wearing a body suit of energy-infusing armor called a Nanosuit. I enter the rail yard equipped with my weapon, when, boom, right in front of me is an abandoned lathe!
Welcome to the world of Crysis 3, a first-person shooter videogame published by Electronic Arts where, as you can see from the image above, machine tools have survived the futuristic doom and gloom.
This image was captured by LeBlond’s General Manager Aaron Juillerat after watching his sons play Crysis 3. This had us thinking … what are some other machine tools references in pop culture?
Post your favorite one in the comments below or hit up our Facebook page. We’re not looking for just LeBlond or K.O. Lee references (if there are any!) Send us anything having to do with machine tools in movies, books, TV shows, comic books or videogames. Get creative and get us your answers! We might put the crowd-sourced results in an upcoming online quiz.
