Last week, Triumph unveiled their latest creation: the Solar Swimsuit. It has mini photovoltaic cells manufactured by a company called Conergy, and these cells can generate enough power to juice up your iPod or your mobile phone. Spanish swimmer Gemma Mengual donned the swimsuit during its unveiling and the creation generated pretty mixed reactions.
Some people question how this swimsuit could possibly be useful, because there’s no way that it can be used in the water. I say it’s only meant for being seen in, and it’s the perfect thing to wear if you’re just going to work on your tan. Beach bunnies would probably find it fun to sit in the sun all day without their iPods’ and mobile phones’ batteries dying on them.
