Think Out Of Bounds.


We use play to disarm global social issues and inspire social invention around the world.

We combine play with innovative technology to address real-world issues in a meaningful, fun way.

Right now, our focus is on clean, reliable energy access for all. Our suite of play products generate real electricity to power small appliances and spread awareness about a global issue that affects billions of people daily.

SOCCKET

The SOCCKET is an energy-harnessing soccer ball. 30 minutes of play can provide hours of light.

PULSE

The PULSE is an energy-harnessing jump rope. 15 minutes of play can be used to power small appliances.

We believe play isn't just good, it's great. 

Play is universal. It inspires creativity, bravery, and happiness. At Uncharted Play, we create products that make it easier for everyone to play more.

Disarm Global Issues


We use sport and play as a tool to disarm social issues.

Our flagship product, the SOCCKET, addresses the energy problem with the most popular sport around the world--soccer. We've started with energy access because it is one of the biggest issues facing humanity today, but we by no means plan to stop there. As long as people play, we know we can make a difference.

Inspire Social Invention


We play to invent a better world.

It is our mission to create products like the SOCCKET that inspire and support social invention in as many people as possible--products that spark the inner creative in all of us.

Our vision: a world where anyone can create something that matters. A world where we tackle social issues together. Together, we can make invention the sexiest thing ever.

OUR IMPACT MODEL

At Uncharted Play, we aim to provide:

  • Joyful, renewable sources of power for resource-poor communities
  • Tangible, fun tools for STEM education globally
  • A platform to motivate organic physical activity
  • An inspirational product to inspire social invention

To achieve this, we distribute the SOCCKET (and soon more of our products!) through schools and community education centers around the world with the help of established NGOs on the ground.

We aim to distribute 1 SOCCKET for every 5 children, and 1 Portable Lamp for every child. Each child can then use his or her lamp to take power from the SOCCKET to bring home. Once we have enough Power Play Kits to meet the needs of a school or community center within our implementation partners' network, we ship them and begin aggregating kits for the next school or community center.

HOW WE FUND OUR IMPACT 

Retail

Funding for Portable Power Kits comes from a portion of the proceeds of retail SOCCKET sales. Once we have funding to provide enough Power Play Kits to meet the needs of a school or community center within our implementation partner’s network, we ship them and begin aggregating kits for the next school or community center. For details on our products, please visit our Products page.

Corporate Partnerships

Corporate partners can sponsor branded SOCCKETs as part of a larger marketing campaign. These balls are distributed in the region of their choice through vetted NGOs. For more information, please visit our Partners page.
