In the middle of the FIFA 2010, Taiwan-based company Greendix has released the World's first solar-powered football.
Crafted in the same size and shape of an ordinary football, the solar-powered football features pentagonal-shaped solar panels, which power built-in motion sensors and an audio device that could potentially aid visually impaired individuals in playing soccer.
Let's see whether FIFA will be interested in using such a solar-powered football in future events or not.
