A Socially Conscious Gift Idea — SOCCKET
Did you know that over 1.3 billion people worldwide are living without reliable access to electricity? This is according to Uncharted Play, the creators of SOCCKET, a soccer ball that harnesses energy from your kickin’ feet. Thank you, bipedalism!
The ball employs a “pendulum-like mechanism” that gathers kinetic energy and stores the power for use as a power source. Play soccer for 30 minutes and it’ll power 3 hours of LED light.
Since creating the prototype, Uncharted Play has brought SOCCKETs to families who don’t have reliable power and teachers who want to teach their students about energy, poverty and entrepreneurship.
We like to be there as revolutionary products break onto the scene so that we can continue to bring our clients new, thoughtful products. We’ll keep our eyes on Uncharted Play as the company grows.
