Solar Bikini

Now that the weather is getting good, finally, solar gadgets will start popping up.  I didn't expect this one however, a Solar Bikini.  The Solar Bikini from NY designer Andrew Schneider can charge a smartphone or MP3 player while the wearer sunbathes.  The solar bikini is made up of 40 thin and flexible PowerFilm Solar photovoltaic pieces connected by conductive threads.

The solar bikini is expected to sell for between $500 and $1,500.  More pictures after the break.

    The fatter you are the more solar panels you can fit and thus the more “green” you are. Obesity is now an alternative form of energy!
