Why not utilize those rays while soaking them in? This bikini does double duty by charging small electronics and serves as an eye-catching piece of swim wear. You'll never have to worry about running out of juice in your iPod at the beach again.
Brooklyn-based designer Andrew Schneider has designed this solar PV cell-studded two-piece that can charge smart phones, MP3 players and other small electronic devices through a USB connector. Each suit takes him about 80 hours to make, as he stitches them all by hand.
And I know what you're all asking yourselves: "Can you wear this in the water?" And the answer is 'yes.' One would obviously want to unplug their electronics before taking a dip, but it is completely safe to wear in the water.
Schneider is currently taking custom orders for the Solar Bikini on his website, Solar Coterie.
