A designer in Brooklyn has created a swimsuit that can charge your iPod while you sunbathe. According to the Post:

The solar-powered swimsuit features photovoltaic panels sewn together with conductive thread to soak up the sun while you’re soaking up the sun.

The hand-stitched suit costs nearly $200 to make.

As a sidenote, apparently he hopes to make trunks for men that cool beer.

So, here we have yet another swimsuit you can’t swim in. And yet… it’s actually more useful than Herve Leger’s infamous sunsuit. Now, if only this guy could make a suit that charges you iPod and blocks malignant tumors, we’d be in business.
