weighing about 30 grams heavier than a standard soccer ball, ‘soccket’ – the energy harnessing soccer ball by uncharted play is
constructed from a custom water-resistant EVA foam that is both durable and soft to the touch. the solid construction eliminates
the need for air pumps and eliminates the risk of puncture and deflation from rough terrain. a pendulum-like mechanism inside
captures the kinetic momentum generated during play, and stores inside the ‘soccket’ for later use as an off-grid power source.
just 30 minutes of play can power a simple LED lamp for 3 hours. designed and assembled in the USA, the project is currently
being piloted in select resource-poor areas of north america and south america. the ‘soccket’ is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
