This ball is equipped with an internal pendulum and a mechanism that recharges a battery, which then powers a lamp for night-time lighting.
The developer, Uncharted Play, Inc, hopes to raise $75,000 on Kickstarter to get this project off the ground and produce it. If you pledge $99 (and the project is funded) you should receive a Soccket ball by about August. Of course, that’s only if you pledge the money before this option sells out.
