Going Green: Your Rack of DOOM!
There is a really amusing article today in slate about using boobs to generate power.
Sorry, had to get that out of the way.
But the gist of the article is investigating how one could use different new technologies in a bra to harness the kinetic energy of boobs.
I thought the science in this article was very interesting, depending on the size of your boobs and the type of bra you are wearing you would generate different levels of electricity:
Measurements compiled by Lawson and her colleagues show that a D-cup in a low-support bra can travel as much as 35 inches up and down (35 inches!) during exercise, while a B-cup in a high-support bra barely moves an inch.
This is not an apples to apples comparison, but a min max sort of comparison. Which I found a little confusing at first. Very… not scientific. But still amazing to contemplate. Rack of Doom=World traveler.
This means that people with bigger boobs would be able to generate more electricity for their own personal use. Take that small boobed people who can shop at Victoria’s Secret!
I think the funniest part of the article is this bit:
I asked Wang if this bra would be machine-washable.
“You don’t need to wash a bra!” he said.
Uhm, On what planet?
Anyway, it’s exciting that we ladies may eventually be able to put the girls to work!
