Pauline van Dongen is both an artist and a fashion technologist.  Based in The Netherlands, she has invented the Wearable Solar Shirt.  Not only does it look cool, it also has the power to charge your preferred electronics.  What looks like metal decorative trims are actually mini solar panels that store sun-­based energy inside the shirt’s battery pack.  Though currently a prototype, I can easily see an entire collection utilizing this technological research as I find her design approach to be modern and very wearable.

  1. This is very directional. I am wondering where the actual battery pack is that is being charged….is it built into the top or in the hem?
