Solar Powered Bra! (The Japanese Think of Everything)

I'm hiding out in my basement while some bad storms move through and came across this bit of fun innovation. I thought it appropriate for a Saturday night post:

Triumph International Japan (which you may remember from their chopstick/rice bowl bra) has developed a solar powered bra that comes with a solar panel (worn around the stomach) that can generate enough power to charge an iPod or cell phone. To avoid plastic bottle use, there are pouches around the breasts that can be used to store water. The bra isn't going to show up in stores anytime soon though; the company is still figuring out how to make the solar panels work through clothing. via Greentech Media
