It came to my attention that no Sims games shows cords, be it power cables or network cables. I have figured that electronics are powered by a Tesla Coil that has been put into use as a power plant as Nikola Telsa imagined and worked for (AKA wireless energy). As for the network cables, I came up with a wireless router (the cables are in the wall). As far as I know, it has no real-world model that it was designed after. My model turned into something like a radar dish. The router is actually a fire alarm (it was that or a security alarm). Since, I often failed to place this crucial objects, I decided to make it a fire alarm.

Why "BELL Y2K"? You may have already noted its similarity to DELL, but maybe not the subtle reference to Belkin, a manufacture of routers and other network devices. Y2K is its model name and seemed to match the theme of computers and internet connectivity.

The router is great for dorms, hotels, apartments, home offices, offices, businesses, and public areas (pretty much wherever a laptop can be taken, which is...well...everywhere.
