A model displays the ‘Photovoltaic-Powered Bra’ in Tokyo
Ladies, take your battle for the environment a little closer to your heart with a solar-powered bra that can generate enough electric energy to charge a mobile phone or an iPod.
Japanese lingerie maker Triumph International unveiled its environmentally friendly "Solar Power Bra" in Tokyo which features a solar panel worn around the stomach. The panel requires light to generate electricity and the concept bra will not be in stores anytime soon, said Triumph spokeswoman Yoshiko Masuda, as "people usually can not go outside without wearing clothes over it".
Masuda added that the bra should not be washed or sunned on a rainy day to avoid damaging it.
