2. Solar Soccer Ball: The Soccket is a soccer ball that can generate and store energy when it’s kicked.

3. Manure into Gold: Manure from cows can be “digested” to make heat, electricity, animal bedding, and fertilizer.

4. Solar Incubator: In poor countries without access to the grid, solar-powered incubators can save infants’ lives.
