Solar powered denim jacket at CeBIT

We're not exactly sure whether a technology trade show is the best place to debut a new line of denim wear, but who are we to argue with Bogner Jeans' solar jean jacket? Bogner promises the jacket will keep your iPod, cellphone, and laptop charged as you make your way through the day (though we'll probably stick with a solar paneled bag for charging up the laptop). Although we won't argue with yet another product looking out for the battery life of gadgets, we're not sure if sticking some solar panel shoulder patches on designer denim is going to make for the best look. Even a big Roadhouse fan would have to admit that lugging a laptop around in your jacket doesn't make you look any tougher, but then again, neither does having Swayze's immaculately combed hair and rugged good looks.
