sOccket - This is a very cool idea, currently beyond "concept" and into mass production.
The sOccket harnesses the kinetic (motion) energy of the soccer ball during normal game play and stores it for later power needs. After play, small electrical appliances, like an LED lamp, can be plugged into the sOccket.
About 20% of the people in the world have no access to electricity; they can spend 10-30% of their resources on kerosene for fuel. The sOccket ball allows them to redeploy some of those funds. In addition, the ball is durable (3+ year lifespan), and replaces substitutes like the "ju-ju ball," made by tying plastic bags together. From X Isle

red dot online: design concept - AIRE is a mask that converts wind energy (provided by the wearer's breath) into electricity for the recharging of small electronic devices.The consumerist tendencies of todayâs industrialised society make the use of gadgets increasingly common, either by necessity or hobby. Though many of our gadgets offer benefits, they tend to consume a high amount of electrical energy. This may cause problems for the environment, especially if the energy used by these devices is derived from non-renewable sources.The use of renewable energy sources is the most important step we can take for the minimisation of environmental damage. Harnessing energy from human activities and transforming it into electrical energy is possible, and is a great solution to such energy issues.AIRE offers a way to do this. It is an electronic mask capable of converting the wind energy provided by the wearer's breath into electrical energy. Inside the unit there are small wind turbines that make the conversion and the energy is transferred through a cable to oneâs small electronic device.AIRE can be used in any situation, indoors or outdoors. It can be used while you sleep, walk, run, or read a book, for example. Besides saving energy (and contributing to environmental preservation), it also encourages the practice of physical exercise. Its energy is available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. From X Isle
