Default can you spot the flaw...

...triumph have just unvelied the first solar-powered bra, which can power up your ipod or phone...http://uk.news.yahoo.com/rtrs/200805...c-4b7b872.html

however, given that the panel requires light to generate electricity (err, dur, it's solar powered!) 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."




not only that, but it's green, and particularly unattractive...

Any particular reason why they didn't think of fixing a solar panel to a mobile itself? Or an I-Pod?

Not 'sexy' enough I suppose....? And hasn't Trevor Bayliss already invented a phone that charges up as you simply walk along?

lionheart is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: can you spot the flaw...

Presumably the solar belt thingie must be exposed to direct sunlight so won't that mean that the women will be walking around in their underwear? Just a thought

Wasn't that Medusa's point, precisely?

You are NOT on form today, Lionheart. Send Mrs Lionessheart to post for you - she'll liven things up a bit.....
