“Solar Bikini” by Andrew Schneider (2006)


The “Solar Bikini” is the work of Brooklyn designer Andrew Schneider, created for the 2006 Tisch School’s Interactive Telecommunications Program Winter Show.

The wearer is capable of charging small electronics, and can even go swimming while wearing it! (Note: do not charge and swim and the same time)

To be fair, I’m pretty sure Schneider intended this more as artistic commentary on technology, but he’s also still offering custom orders.

Unrelated to this work, Schneider is the 2015 OBIE Award winner, and was given five stars by both The New York Times and TimeOut New York.
