Soccket: The soccer ball that generates electricity

"Presser is also a co-inventor of the Soccket, a soccer ball that produces electricity by being kicked around. The Soccket generates and stores energy for use in simple DC devices, such as LED lights, cell phones, or radios. The Soccket harnesses the incredible popularity of soccer in many developing countries without adequate electricity infrastructure. The Soccket team will pilot the device in South Africa during the summer of 2009."
