Hot Pants!

More solar-powered items are coming out every day. And why not: it's free power! And soon a new American clothing line could be putting solar panels on you.
For the low low price of US$920 (!!!), Silvr Lining can sell you a pair of Go Urban Cargo Pants, which boasts "fly front, low-slung drawstring waist, and two back patch pockets with button down flaps". Oh yea, the main reason you might be mad enough to pay nearly a K for a pair of pants: "two side cargo pockets each comes with independently-functioning power supply."
The cargo pants are just one item in the new clothing line from Silvr Lining that can generate its own solar power - not enough renewable energy to power a small town, but the pocket-sized solar panels will be able to charge small electronic items like MP3 players and smartphones. As if US$920 weren't enough, if you want to charge more than one item with each solar panel, it's going to cost you another $20.
The collection also features solar-powered jackets and overcoats: ideal for the northern winter!
Just make sure you remove the solar panels before you throw your pants in the wash.
