An inventor has decided it is not enough to get a great tan while sunbathing during the summer. Andrew Schneider has decided the bikini needs to also generate power. So, according to All Headline News, he created the iKini.
The swimsuit … is made with 40 highly flexible and thin photo-volcanic panels takes over 80 hours to make. He said he initially came up with the idea as a joke.
â€œIt was the first day of school and we were going around the table brainstorming ideas for sustainable products. I didn’t really have anything exciting so I leaned over to my friend and just jokingly said that I was going to make a bikini that could cool your beer at the beach,â€ says Schneider in TODAY show report. â€œWe laughed about it, but a few weeks later I realized that it was very much possible from a technical standpoint.â€
Schneider said that the swimwear is completely safe and users shouldnâ€™t worry about getting an electric shock while using it. â€œYou wouldnâ€™t even feel the charge,â€ he said.
According to the designer, you could even go for a swim as long as you make sure that you are â€œdry before hooking up.â€
Currently the fashion forward technological attire is only available for women however Schneider has revealed that he intends to create a pair of trunks that can cool beer.
The novel idea turned swimsuit sells for $500 and $1,500.
