NVMesh is pretty neat as a SDS with the expectation of all nodes being initiators and targets, but it does put some additional load at the client to effectively implement a software storage controller at the client to determine how to split data to get RAID-esqe protection. Runs on regular TCP/IP now too rather than just fibre channel RDMA RoCE.

Transactions of the Symposium on Space Nuclear Power Systems, (5th) Held at Albuquerque, New Mexico on January 11, 1988. | National Technical Reports Library - NTIS
The PDF contains info on wheelguns, giant counterrotating flywheel hoops in space to supply power to SDI weapons, mainly railguns/particle accelerator cannons/free electron lasers that need huge amounts of power right now. Appears to expect to be trickle charged over time by a small space nuclear reactor (SNAP? atomic teakettle?). Also has an interesting microwave power beaming scenario from a nuke in mars synchronous orbit to a ground rover, high performance radiators, including a fabric heatpipe radiator, a curie point magnetic liquid droplet radiator, and other power conversion concepts.

DriveScale - Leader in Software Composable Infrastructure
Pushing for diskless blades and JBOD's in a rack, linked together by 100Gbit ethernet in a composable fabric, with endgame being NVMe over fabric. Sorta like resurrecting ATAoE... Which wasn't a bad idea per se...

high end technical pants, with tailoring styled more for biking (pockets/loops won't interfere with harnesses or places that come in contact with the seat or frame). Apparently now working with warp knit weft insertion fabric that's pretty fancy.

Wow, microfluidic channels embedded in fabric which allow directional control of fluid movement, so you can do things like channel sweat from a shirt into the shirt bottom so it will drip out.

Radiative human body cooling by nanoporous polyethylene textile | Science
So visual light opaque but IR transparent polyethylene fibers (used in batteries) can be used to make clothing that feels cooler since it isn't trapping IR heat. Coupled with some treatment to make it hydrophilic so it doesn't bead up sweat, and it could be the basis for new summer clothes.

New Climachill range of t-shirts with titanium fibers and aluminum spheres to increase heat conductivity for a better cooling effect. I think the spheres might also be doing a tenting effect to increase effective evaporative cooling rates as well.

Bulletproof Suit - Garrison Bespoke
Nice idea, but it seems to be a bulletproof fabric suit. Unless it's a 3 piece suit with a snazzy vest that doubles as a plate carrier, or is lined with DragonSkin platelets, life is going to suck when you get hit.

Humdinger :: Windbelt Large
Using the buzzing effect of a taut belt in wind, these guys use a piezoelectric fabric to recover the vibration energy of the belt as it resonates in the passing wind turbulence. The only big issue I can see is the noise generated, as by design you lose a fair amount of wind generated power to acoustic loses
