Why not stylish hats with solar panels charging a built-in nano with integrated ear-buds that can be stowed in the brim.

I'd be interested to see just where they put the "outlets" :-) I can think of two perfect places.

Seems more eco-unfriendly to me...a garment that has absolutely no utility whatsoever (as the article points out, undergarments don't get sun exposure outside) , but probably used a lot of materials and energy to produce.

What the heck is it made out of, astroturf? Maybe if you can get it to power a scoreboard on that little panel a few football widows might benefit from it catching their husbands' attention, but that's about it.

A wide-brimmed hat of some description would have been the garment of choice surely?

I thnk it's a great idea. A slight change in cultural clothing styles and we'll be all set to go.

The bra is also equipped with pads designed to hold beverages so that the usage of cans and plastic bottles can be reduced, the company said.
So she'll start out in the morning quite well endowed and be less so after a walk on a hot day?

the "Solar Energy Bra" follows the company's other green-themed undergarments that include a bra that turns into a reusable shopping bag

This also seems like a good product. Makes those long waits in grocery store lines more interesting.

OMG, that made me laugh so hard, even my animals are looking at me oddly.

And they are keeping score of what, exactly?

I'm not sure it matters. :biggrin: Ever see the trance guys go into when a scoreboard pops up on the TV screen?

Yep. I'm pretty sure the combination of both would keep men's attention for days!

yeah, but they'd lose some of their solar power if those came out

It's very eco-friendly, but I'm not too sure why someone would think to to do this. It doesn't seem to practicle. If they had them in the US, I would get one...It's a very neat invention

As if we needed more proof that the "green" movement is a symptom/manifestation of a mental illness. That's got to be the best/dumbest story on the subject I've seen yet.

I'm all for changing that convention....you know, for the environment...

Together, we can make a difference.
