Speedo plans to maximize the buzz from Michael Phelps' historic run in Beijing by making its LZR Racer swim suits available for the general public to buy. The suits are $550 each--not bad for a design that features NASA input and revolutionary light fabric--and will start to ship out in October. Speedo is taking pre-orders for the LZR Racer suits now.

These suits are the world's fastest swimsuit. Worn by the United States Olympic team, the suits inspired a fit of controversy before the games began in Beijing. I'm betting these won't make it to your neighborhood pool, but they may help out triathletes and other competitive swimmers.
