Scott eVest already makes a jacket with solar panels built into it for recharging your phone, PDA, MP3 player, or other electronic devices. If the nanocomposite thin film solar panels being evaluated by the U.S. Army Soldier Systems Center work out, maybe solar power collecting clothes could be made sufficiently non-geeky looking that they become common. Being able to trickle charge your electronics that way would be great, and might compete with miniature fuel cells as a way to provide long effective battery life for mobile electronics.
