Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

If I had the chance and great mind to help me make energy while running I would. Everyday we walk. That is a rhetorical statement. Now, what if you could make your daily habit into an energy-making habit? This concept came up to me when I read about s0ccket. Socckets are soccer balls that store energy. How? Everytime you kick,dribble, throw the ball it stores energy and can be used for later. It may sound interesting and it is.

Think about it! You get to be healthy , have fun , save money on electricity playing soccer! Now, I'm sure someone will agree on me that making energy might be possible while walking. Everytime you walk it makes more force than a soccer ball when it hits the ground (different outcomes might occur). What I am thinking is a removable energy shoe sole for everyone to use. Why shoe sole? Soles of the feet produce the force when walking and it makes sense!

This invention might help only little. There is a saying that little things make the big thing matter. You can charge your mobile phone with this. Use the energy for light and all those little things will add up to a big change! You do not have to think about walking with those energy making shoe soles! Lastly, we humans are evolving everyday, innovation, technology and sustainability will soon be a way of life and you wouldn't even tell the difference.

This is really cool, thanks for sharing. How would someone obtain one of these soccer balls. Do you think you could introduce them into your community in Fresno?

the soccer balls are called soccket. check their website www.soccket.com

Not a bad idea, worth making a prototype at least!

An awesome idea! In fact, someone already came up with one (prototypes, at least). Alberto Villarreal's BrightWalk shoes use energy generated from your motion to light up your path. While they might only power lights now, it's not much of a stretch to get them to power your personal devices.

Thank you for the information! That is invigorating to know someone already in the verge of making these things one step at a time!

I'm sure I saw something about shoes that generate energy for the military. I'm sorry that was months (maybe a few years?) ago so I'm not sure if I can find the reference, but I 'll let you know if I do.

Would be great to bring this to the ma**** tho! I would love to listen to more music without having my cellphone run out of battery =)

just thought... wouldn't it be better to be able to attach the energy generating system to any shoe? In this way you can use the shoes you already have instead of buying new green shoes (which would actually require more resources)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
