sOccket - a pretty fancy footballWatch video now
Even kicking a football can generate energy - and now there is a football that can collect that energy.
Once stored it can run a light or charge a mobile phone helping people who don't have access to electricity.
This incredible invention was created by a clever group of students studying at university.
It will bring light to kids across the wold who aren't able to turn on the light each night at home.

Can you think of a way to capture the energy of fun and use it?
Research kinetic energy, which is what sOccet is harnessing or even take a look at piezoelectric materials to see if you can develop your own idea...
We asked Australian students to make a video or convince us in writing about their BIG ideas for a sustainable energy future.
Check out the fantastic videos we received, all about sustainable energy solutions!VIEW THE GALLERY OF ENTRIES
