Uncharted Play, the creators of the energy-harnessing soccer ball Soccket, has come out with a new product, the PULSE jump rope, which also harvests kinetic energy.

PULSE gathers the kinetic energy created from skipping rope and converts it into electricity, which can later be used to charge small devices like mobile phones.

The rope is custom-designed with the latest 3D-printing technology and has specially-made handles designed for maximum production of energy.

The product is currently on a beta release with only a hundred limited edition units of the device up for grabs for $129 on the company’s website. Each PULSE purchased supports the company’s mission to provide access to renewable energy and education. Uncharted Play works with Child Fund International to establish SOCCKET Teams in communities around the world.
