She's electric: The Solar Bikini is powered by the sun and has USB sockets stitched in for the wearer to plug in an electronic device

For those fed up with their iPod running out of power when lazing about in a bikini, help is at hand. It comes in the shape of a £120 swimsuit made of solar panels.

The designer, New York-based Andrew Schneider, is even hoping to create a pair of trunks that can cool beer.
He spends up to 80 hours creating 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,’ he added.
Anyone worried about getting a shock from their swimwear needn’t be.
‘You wouldn’t even feel the charge,’ insisted Mr Schneider.
