Soccket is a football that generates electricity by playing the soccer ball. It was developed based on the idea of changing the play into energy. The playing action of kicking and dribbling, will turn into the electricity power and LED lamp is plugged in the sOccket to provide light when it gets dark.

The soccket generates three hours of electric power by playing it for ten minutes. The charged energy can be used to light the small size of LED and charge the cell phone as well. In Africa, they use the kerosene lamp as their light source. However, it is not only an expensive fuel, but also the smoke from the light is harmful to the respiratory system, which eventually causes the death of children. The soccket takes an advantage of children’s energy into the electricity power that not only contributes the community building but also be used in any countries.
