logistically viable. In my world, we have the belt problem;
roughly, how many devices can one hang on an officer who
run to catch a *customer*. The same problem showed
the IETM world where the user was a soldier; every pound
weight is that much less food or other supplies he can carry.
there are the hardening issues. For a device to be logistically
viable, it has to do one thing so vital so well that it can't be
without (eg, laser sights); or it has to combine several
useful applications in one box and that can quickly affect
usability. Logistics is the art of tradeoffs to complete and
achieve a mission goal.
while I can see some pretty direct applications of it, one
still have to consider logistical viability.
cost more than the table napkin, but one doesn't

the drawing is done.
I think it's the kind of idea that
could *really* fly since there are so many potential uses for it. Of course,
it's a matter of just how useful it is and how cost effective in different
settings. But I wouldn't be at all surprised to see lots of new uses come out
of the woodwork in the next few months.
