A New York based designer, Andrew Schneider, has invented something new in the bikini world for those who like to listen to music while they’re lazing on the beach.
His swimsuit is made up of thin solar panels which are stitched together with conductive thread, and it can be used to power your iPod – or any device with a USB connection – while you’re out in the sun.
A clever little idea and it doesn’t perhaps cost as much as you’d expect, with a price tag of £120.
Those who might be worried about water coming into contact with this charging outfit need fret not, as it’s perfectly safe to take a swim wearing the bikini, apparently.
However, you need to dry off afterwards before hooking up your device to the swimsuit. Not that any shock would be detectable anyway, according to the designer.
