Back in 2009 Aspecks featured a documentary entitled “In the Hands of Gods” where five British freestylers harnessed the power of their football skills to fund a trip to Argentina to meet Maradonna. Now, four Harvard graduates working together on a group project have taken the power of football literally and created the sOccket, a football that captures and stores energy during normal game play to be used to later to provide real, environmentally-friendly energy to power electrical appliances like LED lamps, water sterilization devices and mini refrigerators. This group project evolved into Uncharted Play, Inc. which was founded by Jessica O. Matthews and Julia C. Silverman as a platform to voice their belief in the power of play and the value of sustainable innovation. sOccket attempts to address the compelling energy needs of 1.5 billion people living without electricity. Every 15 minutes of play with the ball generates enough power to light up an LED lamp for 3 hours.
