“Soccket” Ball Generates Free Electricity

It looks like a normal soccer ball, but Soccket has a secret: a hole for a charging cable. Designed by two Harvard students, the ball has a pendulum-like mechanism inside that stores kinetic energy produced during play. Thirty minutes of play can power an LED lamp for three hours. The plan is to distribute the ball to kids across Africa, helping to bring electricity to rural areas. In this photo, we can see that Soccket also happens to appeal to US presidents.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
