Slan-like tendrils on one's head can be used for small item storage.
In A.E. Van Vogt's classic science fiction novel "Slan", the
eponymous race of beings are telepaths with prehensile
tendrils on their heads. But having many flexible tendrils on
your head would be useful for purposes other than telepathy.
My Nifty Slan-Cap is a hat covered in many short, flexible
lengths of wire, or "tendrils". Whenever I have to carry
something smalla pencil, a ping pong ball, some spare
changeI stick it on my head and wrap some tendrils around
it, and my hands are free for other activities.
This could be you. [DrWorm, Jul 19 2010]
