Heat is on…your breasts?
By: Julie Ryan Evans
In the 60s women burned their bras. In the future will we risk getting burned by ours?
A new Solar Power Bra was recently unveiled in Japan. They claim it can “generate enough electric energy to charge a mobile phone or an iPod.”
Now there’s a lot I’ll do to protect the environment, but I don’t think I’d go this far. First of all, while they claim that it’s comfortable, I have serious doubts based on the photos provided; and it makes me feel hot just thinking about.
Plus, if women are going to get shouldered with this responsibility as well, then I definitely want to see a Solar Powered Bro for men, a la Seinfeld, as well. Solar underwear shouldn’t discriminate.
Fortunately, the bras won’t be in stores anytime soon as they’re still trying to work out that little matter of clothing that most people wear over their undergarments-apparently it blocks the light.
