Kicking goals with green


One of the clients I work with is Origin a leading green energy provider.

So I'm always on the lookout for interesting green initiatives.

Today I discovered a really clever one. Especially for use in developing countries.

It's called s0ccket.

In essense it's a soccer ball that generates energy as people play with it.

Genius!

The people behind s0ccket describe it as a "fun, portable energy-harvesting energy source in the form of a soccer ball".

And for every 15 minutes of play it generates enough energy to power an LED light for three hours.

Best of all not only does it generate energy it also help kids burn theirs. Which surely has to be a good thing.
