Weapon Harness
Wearable complex of devices for ordinary sophonts, sometimes disguised as clothing, with extra add-ons for dedicated ai, expert systems, point defence and sometimes even offence. One version, the Trillicon Distractor, is able to launch chaff, foglets, and smoke to protect the wearer from attack when it detects it. More offensive versions exist, with weapons under the control of an expert system and partially the owner; they tend to be quite dangerous to approach.
