Kinetic energy from bra powers iPod

Bras are supposed to be intimate wear that offers ample support to prevent the ravages of gravity, right? Well, what happens with all that swinging around during a workout that you could actually harvest kinetic energy generated so that they can be used to power a portable device like a cell phone or iPod instead? Researchers already have data on the physics of breast motion over the past 20 years, and these results were mostly used to design a more comfortable sports bra. What if that same data could be studied and developed further for a kinetic energy harvesting bra? That'd be really something, but it does require the lady wearing one to be pretty well endowed.
