If you’re going to dress your dog up in silly outfits [1], they may as well serve a purpose. That’s the tack behind this solar puppy sweater [2] created by Erik Shiegg [3]. According to him, the hi-tech canine couture is capable of charging an Android phone in no time, plus “the dog feels good and I’m feeling good and planet mud is turned a little bit more into planet earth”. Eco-conscious pooches [4] rejoice!
