Soccer Lights / Household Lighting Concept

Soccer Lights

‘Soccer Lights’ is a package containing a soccer ball and several inflators with which people can generate light by playing soccer and share the light with multiple players. When moving, the soccer ball transfers the kinetic energy into mechanical energy inside. An hours’ playing will generate about 12 hours’ light. Then, players connect the ball and the inflator, and then press the handle to generally lit up the light bulb inside as if they were ‘inflating’ the soccer ball. Concerning the high cost and instability of electricity in the Sub-Saharan areas, I tried to not only bring cheap electricity to them, but also protect their smiles.
