Solar Panels Debut on a Windbreaker

I knew it was time, time to see something actually "wearable" integrate solar cells into its fabric. Don't get me wrong, the solar bikini and the ZegnaSport Solar Jacket possess endless gadget-charging capabilities but this solar jacked, designed by North Carolina State University, looks like a typical windbreaker and includes a solar panel.

The jacket is still in its "concept phase" but it is said to be made from a process called digital textile printing where the actual print of the fabric matches the pattern of the solar panel. And it is 100 percent safe to wear, so you don't have to worry about being zapped while juicing up your BlackBerry.

Won't it be great when clothes incorporate solar cells in its fabric and you can't even tell? Shouldn't be long folks.
