Not all children are fortunate enough to have access to electricity, but designer Jesse Lee of Diamond Bar has developed a product that will bring light to even the darkest corners of the earth, with the 'Powered by Sports' Lamp.

The concept of this lantern is rather simple: a removable rechargeable battery is kept within the soft-shelled soccer ball, harnessing the energy input from every kick a kid lays on it. When evening falls, the field is no longer visible and illumination is needed for nightly chores, the battery can be placed within the portable eco-friendly light fixture so that it may emit a generous glow.

Designed especially with underprivileged African children in mind, the 'Powered by Sports' Lamp would not be possible without inspiration from the founder of 'Charity:Water,' Scott Harrison. Stats for Impact-Powered Lights Trending: Older & Mild
