With the increasing popularity of solar panels for energy, and the number of electronic devices we use on a day to day basis, it’s no surprise that an emerging trend is fashion lines with implemented solar panels.

On display right now at the Science Gallery in Dublin is an exhibit called Technothreads that deals with issues such as environmentally manufactured clothing, eco-friendly dyeing, and of course digital clothes.

If you’re looking for something a little more flashy, check out the new Solar Powered Lingerie from Triumph International. Although the solar powered bra is far less practical than a solar powered t-shirt or dress, it’s interesting to see the lengths we may soon be going to in order to keep our cell phones and iPods charged.
