22 September 2014 | Fastmovers

In a favela in the heart of Rio de Janeiro Shell built the world’s first soccer pitch to have floodlights powered by footsteps. The 200 specially designed tiles placed beneath the surface of the pitch use the kinetic energy released by the players. The field was unveiled by soccer legend Pelé.
