The Soccket

If you're reading this post that means 2 things:
  1. You're living well-enough to access the net ...
  2. You're a ever living ever faithful Futbolr!
This post is going to show how being a Futbolr can save lives.

The NY Times has put together a story on a break-through technology that is going to help a huge amount of kids in third-world situation. Check out the SOcket, a soccer ball that is generating energy that can charge a cell phone, juice up a battery or a light an LED lamp instead of the kerosene lamp that has caused harm to many kids just trying to get some light. This one goes out to the 4 intelligent Ivy League ladies that have made this project a reality.
