Now, a bikini that can charge your iPod!

Are you fed up of your iPod running out of power when lazing about in a bikini. Now, help is at hand.

A New York-based designer has created a solar-powered bikini that can charge everything from an MP3 to a camera.

Andrew Schneider’s solar bikini is made of solar panels and cost 120 pounds.

He spends up to 80 hours hand-stitching each bikini with 40 paper-thin flexible, photo-voltaic panels and conductive thread.

The user can even take a dip.

“You just need to be dry before hooking up,” The Daily Mail quoted Schneider as saying.

Anyone worried about getting a shock from her swimwear needn’t be.

“You wouldn’t even feel the charge,” he added.

Schneider is even hoping to create a pair of trunks that can cool beer.
