Bras Could Power Electronics

I find this to be rather entertaining, apparently bras could be manufactured that produce electricity from bouncing breasts. If one was to combine this electricity producing bra with the eco-friendly bra the world would witness the greatest piece of underwear ever made.

Then one day recently, I had an idea. As I rode a bus to the office, my messenger bag slung uncomfortably across my chest, I thought, “Why not put the girls to work?” Human-powered devices are showing up everywhere, from Rotterdam’s sustainable dance floor to human-powered gyms in Hong Kong. The timing seemed perfect – perhaps even overdue – for a bra that could harness the untapped power of breast motion.

The idea of an energy-generating bra isn’t as crazy as it might sound. The underwear company Triumph International Japan recently unveiled a solar-powered bra that supposedly will generate enough energy to power an iPod. But I live in foggy San Francisco and prefer not to walk around in my underwear in public. Could someone design an iPod-powering bra for me?

  1. Um, but the whole point of a sports bra is to *stop* the bouncing! If there’s bouncing going on, it means the bra isn’t working well enough for comfort.

  2. I was wondering the same thing…perhaps using magic the bra somehow turns all the bouncing into fun.

    Seriously, I think that’s why this idea won’t catch on.
