Talk about frying two birds with one solar. What the hell does that mean? We don’t know. But it’s as good a way as any to explain this bizarre invention from Brooklyn-based designer Andrew Schneider, who has created a solar paneled bikini with a USB plug powerful enough to charge your iPod or camera. Really? Really! Given that it takes some 80 hours to make and requires around two hours of sunbathing to charge an iPod, we’d say this’ll be a very limited edition range, indeed.
