Invented by Matthews and her partner Julie Silverman, the SOCCKET harnesses the kinetic energy of a soccer ball during play and stores it for later power needs. After play, small electronic appliances, like an LED lamp, can be plugged into the SOCCKET.

At Uncharted Play, the goal is to convince the masses to “rethink FUNction” by creating solutions to global problems that optimize the functionality of play and inject more joy into each day. For the SOCCKET, this meant taking a sport loved around the world and harnessing this passion to provide real, environmentally friendly energy.
