Put away those flimsy little nylon bikinis and instead strut your stuff in this Solar-Powered Bikini. Aside from being on a totally different level, it makes your already smoking bod look even better by accentuating all the right curves. More than that, it can also charge up your iPod, smartphone, or any other device via USB because it’s actually made up of a series of photovoltaic cells sewn together with conductive wire.
Gone are the days when you need to get up from your lounger to fit your device with a spare battery or keep it because it has run out of juice. As you can see, the Solar-Powered Bikini is pretty skimpy and doesn’t have room to hold a battery. This means that any energy it can get from the sun is directly transmitted straight to your mp3 player or mobile phone. Bazinga!
A solar film bikini that charges your iPod! (With a USB connection!)
The suit is a custom made bikini swimsuit retrofitted with 1″ x 4″ photovoltaic film strips sewn together in series with conductive thread. The cells terminate in a 5 volt regulator into a female USB connection. Don’t worry guys! The male version of the Solar Bikini (coming soon) called the iDrink, features a greater surface area which equals more output voltage. This additional juice is used to power a 1.5 amp peltier junction which cools a single beer in a custom coozy. Double cool!
The iDrink solar swimware line is perfect for those who want to go the beach, listen to music, and enjoy a cold and deserved beverage, but who don’t want to get wet! You’ve got tunes, you’ve got beer, you’ve got sun, and you’ve got eachother in swimwear.
These Solar-Powered Bikinis are now available for custom orders via Solar Coterie.
