New Gadget Your Wife Might Want
Solar powered houses, cars and now bikinis? Yep you can snap one up…if you are daring. But don’t expect to get one cheap.
Tired of your MP3 player running out of juice at the pool? Cross that frustration off your list this summer thanks to the Solar Bikini, the high-tech bathing suit that can charge your MP3 player or other small devices while you relax in the sun.
Unfortunately, you can’t exactly pick up this baby in time for a quick getaway this weekend. Each suit needs to be custom ordered, handmade and can take more than 80 hours to create. The bikini doesn’t weigh anymore than a regular bathing suit even with 40 solar cells attached, although the price tag is heavy: It sells for between $500 and $1,500, depending on how many solar panels you need.
