SOCCKET Power-Generating Soccer Ball on Kickstarter

March 1st - via: geekosystem.com
SOCCKET is one of the neater ideas in green energy I've been following lately.

The project has been tested, revamped and improved in communities around the developing world, and as of this week, they're trying to boost their ability to produce the power-generating playthings with a Kickstarter that's worth at least your attention -- and probably a little bit of your money, too. (Read More)
