Metal Rice Hat
A rare experimental prototype created by hackers to power wearable devices and augmentations with untraceable solar power. Unfortunately, the effectiveness of the device has only been proven in a test setting using artificial UV light, as Mega City's "exhaust layer" that hovers above the center of the city has diminished the capability of solar panels in the city. The potential of the tech remains compelling, and some have acquired the hats in anticipation of trying to get beyond Mega City's walls, where they theorize a different type of atmosphere may exist in the absence of the exhaust layer.
Regardless of the solar power features, the ability of these hats to carry low-profile tech has led to runners adapting them for everything from portable data storage to surveillance deflection.
