Solar Powered Arcade Game Wins Award

solar-soccer.jpg

Soccermania is a solar powered arcade machine from Polish game manufacturer Kriss-Sports. It won some award for using green technology at an amusement machine expo held last month.

Soccermania features solar panels and a rechargeable battery, and does not require any other type of power source to function. The model shown at Surexpo had a hard solar panel; however Kriss-Sport stated that this may be changed to a solar panel made out of elastic foil. The batteries used in Soccermania are used to load the accumulator, which is able to power the machine for anywhere from 12 to 48 hours.

Yeah. It's a solar powered soccer game. So it, uh, needs sunlight to work. And where does sunlight come from? Outside. Where, get this -- you can play real soccer.

    What would we do without your genius comments? Hahaha. You play with it in amusement parks, in beer gardens, in closed playgrounds... it's a toy! If your posting something and commenting on it you should do some more research, otherwise you look like an amateur, ofc. your an amateur and we know it but it is someway weird that someone is posting something with no knowledge about it. Personally I hate that product and I don't care about it but worst is only lack of knowledge of peeps who talk about stuff.
