Solar Bikini

Ladies, imagine having a bikini that will show off those abs you've been working on all winter while soaking up enough solar energy to power your iPod Shuffle. The Solar Bikini uses photovoltaic film strips, and a 5-volt regulator manages electrical output. The bikini was created by New York-based multimedia designer and performer Andrew Schneider for the 2006 winter show of the Tisch School's Interactive Telecommunications Program. Schneider's Website says he is also working on a male version called the iDrink that will produce enough power to cool a beer in its own custom-made drink cozy. So far neither swimsuit has hit store shelves.
