New York based designer Andrew Schneider has developed a solar powered bikini that is capable of powering an iPod on a sunny day. The high-tech swimsuit comprised of thin, flexible photovoltaic film strips and USB connectors is hand woven with conductive thread — so be careful where you spill your beer.
And while his motivation for the product appears to be technical, there’s no denying it’s really just to stare at hot women modeling his bikinis all day — which is similar to my motivation for posting about women’s swimwear on a guy’s lifestyle blog.
Schneider is now taking orders for his solar-powered bikini, and at just under $200 it’s not much more expensive than other overpriced swimwear, unless of course you wear bikinis of the Kirkland brand variety.
