Anathem by Neal Stephenson:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

Fascinating novel by Stephenson details the lives of scientist monastics; centuries of scholastic arguments by nerd avouts take place against a background of the rise and fall of civilizations. Vast clocks set the pace for the intervals at which the avouts interact with the rest of the world. Until something unexpected happens. Select an invention:

Allswell

Blithe

Fuel Tree

Kinagram - moving letters

Photomnemonic Tablet - blank recording slate

Spine-Clamp - restraint bolt for humans
