Solar-powered arcade football – but there's an obvious flaw


Good news for arcade owners looking to save a few quid on the electric bill – solar-powered arcade football is here.

That game is Soccermania from Polish game manufacturer Kriss-Sports, which uses solar panels and a rechargeable battery to power up. That battery can offer up to 48 hours of gaming from a full charge.

But here’s the flaw. Arcades, as a rule, tend to be indoors and as a rule, very dark. Which makes you wonder where this solar energy is going to come from? Bit of tweaking needed here lads.
