s0ccket soccer ball undergoes testing in Africa

South Africa will be hosting the World Cup later this summer, and we wonder just how green the event will be. Regardless, the s0ccket soccer ball has some elements of being eco-friendly, where it stores all the kinetic energy it receives with all the kicking around, where it can hold enough juice to power a single LED while recharging a small battery-operated device. The s0ccket soccer ball is currently in its prototype stage, where youth in Africa are having a ball of their time (literally) play-testing it. Great idea too, as youth seem to have plenty of energy to burn so why not translate that to electricity?
