The mother, Lydia, expresses concern to George, the father, about the technology of the house. She wants a psychologist to look at the nursery because she is weary about the room.
The parents notice that the room has been stuck on an African veldt scene for a few days. They feel that something is wrong with the room and are beginning to realize the possible faults that accompany technology.
George realizes that the family is too lazy, since the house does everything for them, and that the kids are becoming obsessed with technology. They call a psychologist to look at the room and make the decision to shut down the room and the house.
Takeaway About Technology
The kids, Peter and Wendy, being obsessed with technology, plan the demise of their parents after they threaten to shut the technology down. The kids have an unhealthy addiction to technology, one of many unpredictable consequences.
We have to do something about them.
Finally, the kids lock their parents in the nursery, in Africa. The lions start feeding and vultures drop. The psychologist asks the kids where their parents are and they merely reply that they are coming soon.
The takeaway about technology is that although there are many benefits to technology, there are also many unforeseen consequences of it if we allow our lives to be consumed by it.
