Flexible Armor and USB Swiss Prediction

Interesting new reference to the "soft armor" concept (read more in Liquid Armor In Two Flavors: Shear Thickening and Magnetorheological). It turns out that Larry Niven wrote about a flexible armor suit in his 1968 novel Neutron Star.

MrKlingon wrote in with an interesting tie-in to the USB Memory Swiss Army knife from earlier in the year; read the story and the story reference from Karen Traviss' City of Pearl.
