What is this handbasket we’re in, and where is it going?

Go-Go-Gadget Superbra

Japan, the country that brought us Pokemon, robots, and an unhealthy obsession with karaoke, is on the verge of creating the single most important advancement in human history – a solar powered bra. Finally, the days of batteries and shirts are over.

Boy is their underwear tech leagues above our own. I remember when tagless underwear was new and they’re strapping solar converters on theirs? I can’t say I’m not impressed by their commitment to going green. I mean if they could get every woman to strap one of those on and parade around without shirts, imagine all the power they could save in powering up that DDR machine. They could probably video tape it and sell it here in the states for a hefty profit, too.

On top of this bra’s amazing solar capabilities, it is also designed with specialized pads that are supposed to hold beverages. This, of course, gives late night comedy show hosts plenty of ammunition for cup, can, and jug jokes…But you heard it here first.

This development, coupled with underwear being developed in Switzerland, really brings to light just how much America is falling behind in the underwear arms race. The most high tech underwear I’ve seen here includes pads to fight minor incontinence. The Japanese are powering their iPods and eliminating the use of cans, while the Swiss are protecting their boys from harmful cellphone radiation! I think it’s time Calvin Klein stepped it up.
