Solar Powered Bikini Can Power Your iPod
New York designer Andrew Schneider has invented a solar powered bikini just in time for summer! While the original design was for a bikini that could keep your beer cold, the suit just wouldn’t produce enough energy. So Schneider he went back to the drawing board:
“The original bikini didn’t have enough surface area to kick out the juice necessary to… cool the beer, so I downgraded to a lower power device. I plugged in my iPod and it worked,” he said. – Orange.com
The “iKini” features USB ports sewn right into the fabric so you can always listen to your ‘iPod” while tanning. Schneider says he hasn’t given up on his original idea of a suit to keep your beer cold. Next for Schneider is the “iDrink” shorts for men that can keep your drinks cold.
