Also the mending apparatus can be called if something is broken or requires repair. To entertain Vashti there is a button for music. She can put any music she likes and can entertain her. There are no speakers or anything of that sort from where the sound can possibly come from. There are no windows in the room but still the room is filled with soft radiance. There are no lamps but still there is light in the room. All this is controlled by just pressing a single button. There are no ventilators where any sort of air can come but still the room can be filled with any kind of atmosphere Vashti desires. There are different buttons to attend lectures or contact the people she knows. She can have food also by pressing a button. A button used in case of emergency or in depression which is the isolation knob. If Vashti is stressed or unhappy she can isolate her self from the whole world by pressing just the single 'isolation knob'. The bed can also be summoned by pressing a button.Although this room may be very fun to live in but after all everything is very artificial which makes this room in no sense better than today's rooms. Adding to the conclusion, technology can give us comfort to a certain point and after that it can take over us.
