Those who can’t survive on the beach without their tunes might be interested in New York designer Andrew Schneider’s solar bikini. The bikini can charge a smartphone or media player while the wearer soaks up the sun. It’s now available for custom order on Solar Coterie. The bikini has 40 thin and flexible photovoltaic strips connected by conductive thread, which ends at a USB port.
