Solar Bikini Charges You Up

Solar Bikini

Apparently, not only is this solar bikini real, but it’s going to be available for pre-order soon.

The bikini itself is made from 1″ x 4″ photovoltaic film strips that have been sewn together with conductive thread, terminating in a 5 volt regulator with female USB connector. All told, it pumps out enough juice to charge an iPod while you relax in the sun and soak up the rays.

(The male version, called the iDrink, will put out enough power to charge a custom cooled drink coozy.)
