"I don't know why I write science fiction. The voices in my head told me to!"
- Charles Stross

Handicloset  
  A self-organizing closet  

Lars Powderdry, weapons fashion designer, enters his place of business to begin work for the day.

Leaving Miss Bedouin, he entered his own office, removing his outer cape, cap and slippers, and extended these discarded items of street-wear to the handicloset.
From The Zap Gun, by Philip K. Dick.
Published by Galaxy Publishing in 1965
