The Nose Machine was an invention created by Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth. Its main purpose was to create glow in the dark noses which a person could then wear over their normal nose. It also can analyze alien languages and paper composition. It is unknown this machine can do many things or just the three. It also produces huge amounts of a corrosive byproduct that looks and smells like toxic waste and tastes like fig pudding, with a distinct toxic waste aftertaste.
