The Soccket

The Soccket was developed by four harvard students who saw a need for a more effective way to produce energy in South Africa.  The practical and fun Soccket, scores big!  Soccer (futbol) is the most popular sport in the world.  Kids are playing soccer in fields, yards, parking lots, gravel lots or anywhere else with enough space to kick the ball around.  In short, The Soccket generates electricity when it’s kicked.  Click here to see how it works. These innovative, practical and down right fun ideas could be just the thing that changes this world. I LOVE THESE!!
