Solar-powered football probably in line for FIFA World Cup 2022

As the FIFA world readies to enter the knock out stage in South Africa, football mania seems to have gripped the world from all ends. If you don’t believe me, then try and explain why a Taiwan-based solar panel manufacturer would install their newly developed pentagonal solar panels on a football? This first of a kind football has solar panels on the traditional black pentagon-shaped leather patches, built-in motion sensors and audio devices, but what’s that for, we have no idea but. But for us, who know footballs are for kicking, would rejoice with tracking sound it emits each time it’s kicked.
