Solar panels for your pants
A new line of clothes come with its own solar panels to charge small electronics in your pocket. For the low, low price of $920, you can own a pair of Go Urban Cargo Pants, which boasts “fly front, low-slung drawstring waist, and two back patch pockets with button down flaps”.
- “Two side cargo pockets each comes with independently functioning power supply.”
- They won’t generate enough renewable energy to power an NFL stadium, but the pocket-sized solar panels will be able to charge small electronic items like MP3 players and smart phones.
- The 6 x 8 inch solar panels can be connected to one of those devices through a USB port, allowing a supply voltage of 5 volts.
