In Larry Niven’s book Protector, a main character wears a vest with about a hundred pockets, stuffed with every conceivable gadget you could want (“Hyperspatial bypass shunt? Knew I had one here somewhere…”). The Scottevest looks like the real-world equivalent. All it needs is a solar cell on the back (well, maybe a small Chernobyl) to power all the devices stuck in the vest. And, of course, an RFID-based way to find them all (or perhaps a pocket containing an inventory).
