This article suggests that solar powered clothing could be coming to the shops soon. Fujitsu Siemens are working on incorporating flexible solar cells into items of clothing and say the device could only take a year to perfect. The solar cells would work by converting light into energy which would then be used to power devices such as mobile phones or MP3 players. It sounds interesting although as sunlight is required, it might not work so well here in the UK, after all we don’t see the sun very often. It could be a good device to take on holiday though.
