Who knew that a soccer ball could generate electricity? “15 minutes of play provides 3 hours of LED light…” Created by two students, this soccer ball, otherwise known as the Soccket, is the “world’s first eco-friendly portable generator” and was “created for resource-poor communities in developing world[s]” The “Soccket harnesses the kinetic energy generated during play with the ball, and stores it as electrical energy that can be used to power different appliances like lamps and water sterilizers.” To learn more about Soccket watch the video below.
