Return of the Solar Powered Bikini

Treehuggers love solar powered bikinis (or do they love the pin-ups of the girls?), so here is another one. The one-piecer has solar panels on the front, artfully placed around Spanish swimming champ Gemma Mengual's cleavage. They will harness enough energy to charge up your iPod or mobile, whilst parading along the beach. This bathing suit is going to be made commercially and available in the shops soon. It was shown as part of the fun at an underwear fashion show in Valencia, held for the World Cup Sailing. The manufacturer, Triumph, has also made a nautically-themed bikini with a silver anchor in an indescribable place, in homage to the sailing competition. :: gizmodo
