Inventive Minds

Young brilliance at its best:

A Texas M.B.A. student was designing a glow-in-the-dark jogging suit when he got distracted.

Now Beau Carpenter is marketing a neon thong that's so far attracted eager customers at a strip club. The Houston Chronicle reports that Carpenter had no trouble enlisting help in his venture from a chemistry lab manager and electrical engineering student.

The GloThongs have batteries that, when fully charged, illuminate the straps for two hours in various neon colors. Customers can use a wall adapter to charge them up, but car chargers are also available.

They'll be available next month and cost about 50 dollars. (Just in time for Christmas).

1 It must be awkward in the middle of a performance when someone yells that it is time to charge up the stripper!

2 I'm really surprised that this hasn't been invented before.

3 At least now I know what to get you for Christmas. Whew, mark that big question off the list.
