Ultranet is a system that is a clear descendent of the contemporary internet. It was developed sometime before 2041. The system allows those to “plug in,” meaning have a jack inserted on their neck, to enter. The user’s body is unconscious for this moment.
- The system bears a close resemblance to Futurama's Internet.
- When Lisa first arrives, the Ultranet asks about her friend requests, a reference to Facebook.
- While there, she also sees "NewTube" an obvious reference, or descendant, of YouTube.
- The manner of entering the Ultranet may be a parody of the Matrix, where humans had cables inserted in many parts of their bodies.
