When we first heard the story behind Uncharted Play, we were amazed: Co-founders Jessica Matthews and Julia Silverman were Harvard undergraduates when they invented the SOCCKET, a soccer ball that doubles as a charger for small electronic devices like LED lamps, cell phones, and even hot plates. Inspired by their time spent in developing countries—both girls watched local youth play soccer games—the ball is designed to appeal to kids while helping families who don’t have safe power sources in their homes. Impressively, 30 minutes of playing with the SOCCKET ball can yield three hours of light. Now, the entrepreneurs are busy distributing the balls in countries ranging from South Africa to Argentina. We sat down with Jessica to learn more about the world-changing work she and her teammates are doing at Uncharted Play.
