Room of Consequence
The Room of Consequence (ROC) is one of John Whittaker's many inventions. It allows the user to see the possible outcome of their actions, similar to the Imagination Station. The ROC can also give the user special abilities.
The Room of Consequence, another of Whit's inventions, was introduced in episode Into Temptation. The idea is that just as the Imagination Station allows individuals to step into the past, the Room of Consequence allows them to see a possible future, usually extrapolated from the decisions the person is making in the present. Unlike the Imagination Station, the Room of Consequence does not appear to allow for significant interaction with the future environment. The Room of Consequence plays a much smaller role in AIO than the Imagination Station, with only twelve episodes including it to date. It now ages the people who takes the trips in the room of Consequence when they go into the future. View all of the inventions at Whit's End
In both the video series and the audio series, the Room of Consequence seems to just "appear". The video series says that Whit had been working on it for a while, and Dylan Taylor and Sal Martinez were very anxious. The audio series introduced it as just being a new invention for somebody (in that case, Jimmy) to try.
- A couple characters took trips in the station, but they are not actually featured in scenes.
- Eugene mentions updating the Room of Consequence in #581: “A Christmas Conundrum”.
- The startup sequence remotely sounds like the sound effect for movies that use Lucasfilm THX.
