You might think that underwear, of all things, would be least susceptible to our tendency to gadgetize absolutely everything around us.

Guess again: A few courageous entrepreneurs have come up with a gaggle of garments — call them undie upgrades — that combine tech and tighty whities.

From coping with global warming to protecting against radiation to maintaining proper hygiene, these are some of our favorite geeky undergarments.

What’s your verdict: Useful or ridiculous? Or do you have your own favorite geeky underwear concepts? Let us know in the comments!

Above: While scientists and politicians bicker about climate change, responsible consumers have altered their habits to cut down on waste and greenhouse gases. But are they prepared to insert heated pads into their cups to ward off nippy conditions?

Utility companies in Japan initiated a conservation effort during 2005, aimed at reducing carbon emissions. Thermostats were kept at 68 degrees and citizens asked to dress more warmly at home and work. Triumph International collaborated by introducing the Warm Biz Bra which contains two reheatable gelatinous pouches. The chili bangle adornment located between the two cups lights up when a comfortable temperature is achieved.

Unfortunately, there are no statistics on how much electricity is used by microwaving bra pouches.

From same place LOL

Spring Break 2011: A massive beaching of college co-eds engulfs shorelines. After car-pooling in Priuses and recycling their Corona bottles, these eco-conscious undergrads suit up in their solar-powered bikinis. The air is filled with incessant chatter, cellphones and iPods fueled by sunbathing. Tequila soaked party-goers delight in the nonstop revelry … until they decide to cool off in the shimmering ocean. Oops: Electrical mayhem ensures.

Another promotional Triumph International creation, 2008’s Solar Power Bra was the company’s big ecological coming-out party. Confused spokespeople claimed the swimsuit was in response to oil dependency, or maybe, to promote Triumph’s investment in solar paneling.

The organic cotton-blend suit carries a photovoltaic cell strong enough to recharge small devices and power an electric bulletin board (”Stop staring at me!”), two cup-hugging drink pouches with attached straws and a stern warning not to get wet.

Now this is something I would wear....

Acolytes of James T. Kirk may dream of hot alien chicks, but until we actually find life in outer space the only way they have of satisfying these science fiction fetishes is glow-in-the-dark underwear.

On the plus side, lab geeks can now delight in the glow of charged phosphors, fantasizing of hot, hot radium.

This line of lingerie comes courtesy of LuminoGlow. Stretch lace is interwoven with luminescent strands, soaking up the sun while you run errands in your underwear. Too modest? Charge up the underwear by flashing your neighbors as you catch rays in your window, or furnish your boudoir with grow lamps.

And how long does the glow last after the lights go out? LuminoGlow coyly suggests that you experience it for yourself.

You have GOT to be kidding me Laughing

Quote :

Triumph Japan’s Marriage Hunting Bra is inspired by sobering marriage statistics and a low birth rate. But it takes a novel and somewhat demeaning approach to reversing the trend.

Women program their ideal wedding age into the LED display, and the numbers begin the countdown to crone-hood –- a spilling of seconds that can only be stopped by the insertion of a wedding ring. Tinny music then serenades the young lovers, who can sign their marriage certificate with the pen and seal secreted in the seams on the white lace bustier.
