sOccket - a pretty fancy football

sOccket - the 90 second story Watch video now

Even kicking a football can generate energy - and now there is a football that can collect that energy.

Once stored it can run a light or charge a mobile phone helping people who don't have access to electricity.

This incredible invention was created by a clever group of students studying at university.

It will bring light to kids across the wold who aren't able to turn on the light each night at home.
