Soccket Energy-Harnessing Soccer Ball

We like products that solve problems — and the Soccket Energy-Harnessing Soccer Ball ($100 and up) solves more than just one. Made from a custom, durable, deflation-proof, and waterproof EVA foam, this plaything actually houses an internal mechanism that takes the kinetic energy from movement and stores it in a battery, which can be used to drive an included single-bulb LED lamp for over three days. In addition to giving you a new gadget and possibly encouraging you to go outside and move about to use it — both good things — purchasing one will also help the company to hire more people, purchase more tools and equipment, automate parts of the assembly process, and expand our manufacturing facility so they can deliver more of the balls to people without light.
