Fahrenheit 451
Comparing Technology
Allison Lee
Period 2
Mechanical Hound
-Made of brass, copper, and steel
-Used to catch wanted people such as thieves or runaways
-Eight legs with rubber padded paw
-Has a sensitive nose that can remember and identify ten thousand different odors on ten thousand men without resetting
-Four-inch hollow steel needle plunges down its victims from the nose of the hound (injects massive jolts of morphine or procaine)
-Never fails to capture someone
Robotic Dogs
-Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency hopes it will be able to accompany soldiers in terrain too rough for conventional vehicles
-Uses for legs for movement allowing it to move across surfaces that wheels can’t
Mindstorms NXT
-Programmable robotics kit released by Lego
-Touch, light, sound, ultrasonic (measures the distance from the sensor to something that it is facing), temperature sensors.
-Robotic dogs (only used as toys) not as nearly as sophisticated as Mechanical Hound
-Designed to resemble dogs’ appearance and behavior such as tail wagging and barking
-A "wall TV"
-Some shows on the Parlor Wall provide scripts that are mailed to households so people can interact with the people in the wall
-Each wall costs two thousand dollars
-You can have “family” in the walls (you can talk to them and they respond to you)
-Motion sensing wall using a projector
-Audience can explore by immersing in it
-Clap hands, swipe hands, jump
-Responds to the subtlest of body movements
-Motion sensing floor using a projector from above
-Audio feedback
-Pumps all the blood from the body and replaces it with new blood
Stomach Machine
-Tube goes into your stomach sucking out all the poison and chemicals
-The operator who wears a special helmet can look into the stomach (see how much needs to be pumped out)
Blood Cleansing Machine
Hemodialysis Machine
-A method that is used to remove waste products and free water from the blood when the kidneys are failing.
Hemodialysis Machine
Fireproof House
Fireproof Spray
-All houses are already built with a fireproof sheath in that time of the story
-None of the houses catch on fire, so firemen no longer put out fires, but burn houses with books found in them instead
Fireproof Plaster Spray

door alarm systems that you punch code in
Door Speaker
-Calls the household owner's name when someone arrives at the door
-"...the front door speaker called her name, softly, softly, Mrs. Montag. Mrs. Montag, someone's here, someone's here. Mrs. Montag, Mrs. Montag, someone's here." (Bradbury p.53)
Parlor Wall
-Motion sensing wall using a projector
-Clap hands, swipe hands, or jump-Responds to the subtlest of body movements
MotionMagix™ Interactive Wall
MotionMagix™ Interactive Floor
-Applied on electrical circuits to keep them below 140 °C so they stay operational
-Applied to liquified petroleum gas containers to prevent explosions
-Gypsum based plaster is applied to building structures
-Only lasts to a certain amount of intensity and duration
-An exposed electrical line known as the third rail (runs alongside the two rails the train cars ride on) powers the subways in New York
-Subways do not use gas-fueled combustion engines because the exhaust in the enclosed subway tunnels and stations would cause carbon monoxide poisoning to riders
-Touching a third rail results in electrocution
-Green metal object
-No larger than .22 bullet
-Both people put earpiece into ear and they can talk and hear each other from far distances without anyone knowing
-Can receive calls without holding phone to ear
-Clearly visible
-Has a safety catch
-Fire comes out if you press hatch down
-Montag was ordered by his captain to use the flamethrower to burn down his house rather than use kerosene and a match
-Designed to project a long controllable stream of fire
-First used during World War I, and widely used in World War II
-First used during the trench warfare conditions of World War I extensively used during World War II
United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II
-A commercial on the subway that makes it difficult for people riding on the subway to think
-On TV and radio
-Not on bus
-doesn’t make it hard to think
Works like a vacuum when one side sucks air and the train moves
Ear Communication (earpiece)
Bluetooth Devices
Atomic bomb
Atomic Bombs
-When bomb hit ground in the story, it created a powerful wind that blew everything down around it
- It flew the city into the air
-A very loud and powerful sound came after it hit the ground
Thank you!
United States dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War 2
