The problem is that people don’t take time to recycle. The solution will be that we found a way to recycle and at the same time have fun. If you want to have fun and at the same time recycle plastic, cans, paper, glass, carton and used batteries you can go to the Machines to Recycle. Instead of using coins and wasting your money you can bring recycle things and you will play with machines. Each machine has different things, for example one will be of cans, you will give cans and then you can play.
People don't pay for parking tickets in most of cases, at least here in Romania... To resolve this problem, I have thought, to make parking ticket machines interactive. Like You can see on my sketch, on the top of the parking ticket machine is a photo camera, which is in permanent contact with a face warp software. The camera takes the shout, the software makes hes job, so, on the parking ticket everybody can see a cartoon about himself. I think, much more people would pay for parking in this way.
Make the sorting of the garbage fun by making it a competition between the neighbours, the street you live on, the city or even the whole country. This garbage container will scan the trash and determining how good it is sorted. You will be able to have your own ”garbage sorting average” and compare it to your friends or the neighbour. This container for plastic will scan the garbage bag you put in and give you a sorting score.
Well, the problem of tha trash cans is sometimes they are "invisible"!
Making them "visible" can be the challenge to clean our parks or streets.. u know.
everytime crossing the line which is asking "any trash?" is like our mother asking everytime: did u clean your hands? and the design by itself is so easy to understand, so familiar to the generations..

Not many guys wash their hands coming out of a public washroom. I think if it was more fun than people would do it all the time and it would promote good hygiene. I think that the taps should play music while they are washing their hands and if the wash them for the correct amount of time (minimum of 15 to 20 seconds of lathering) then a prize drops out of a slot for them. This could be a mint or something like that. Just an idea.

Sticking to the speed limit. Nobody likes to do that! Why go slow when you can go fast? Of course driving fast is dangerous, with governments implementing speed limits as a result. And there is no reward for good driving, only penalties for bad driving! What this system does is encourage safe driving while making it fun, and rewarding drivers for sticking to the speed limit. How it works is that software is developed that integrates with Sat Navs - and/or takes the form of a standalone device.
The striking simplicity of this installation proves that the combination of sports and waste disposal is an effective and fun way to change people's behaviour to better. During a couple of days of filming, our Basketball Bin disposal unit was widely appreciated and used by the customers of a nearby fastfood restaurant. The installation consists of a readymade Basketball bin, wood and a trashbag with masking tape net-decor. Inskickat av Sascha Nelle, Simon Frambach and Rosa Heinz.
Transform mechanic energy of human body into electric energy and use that energy to:
1. Benefit on yourself (health/exercise, discounts in green stores..)
2. Benefit to your community (saves energy and use that money to improve the city into a sustainable one)
3. Benefit the planet (less pollution and sustainable cities)

People nowadays tend to be impressed or attracted by something new or unique. The refuse bin was design in an upside down way to attract the crowd (What is your first reaction or impression when you see an inverted refuse bin hanging on the wall?) Throwing aluminum cans can be fun, the upside down way, where your cans will be suck upwards (a fun interaction between human and refuse bin). Funny sentences and phrases displayed on LCD screens after each throwing action, using several weird quotes create some unexpected fun while throwing your cans (i.e.
Here you can see some pictures from a charity action I organized with the members of the school charity organization in the ational High School for acient languags andcultures in Bulgaria. This is an organization which I created and which work with children in trouble, orphas and od people and also we have a lot of loal area projects for making people understand theneed of oluntary acts and social change, a small step for a world with much more smiles and positive acts. This action included 20 students fromthe High school which were divided tothree groupswith one clown in each.
Problem tackled: Reducing the cigarette litter in front of public places.
Solution: Make it fun to stub out a cigarette in an ashtray. On the tray is mounted a video screen equiped with some kind of heat sensing. The cigarette butt is used on the screen as a paint brush. The color of the "trait" depends on the heat sensed. The color degrades in time creating a dynamic painting that evolves continuously.

Can you get humans to eat healthier food through fun?
It’s always more fun to open colorful packages with loud writing, cool logos and slogans. How can a piece of fruit in the super market ever compete with a candy bar? It can’t! SO….
Imagine lush and colorful shrink-wrappers over bananas, apples and mandarin oranges. Put them right next to the candies, which in the USA are typically in the checkout line to entice last minute impulse buys by children. Guilt and fun I believe will
The machine will take any kind (and color) of plastic bags. It will compress them towards the walls of a transparent bin tube. the bin will also be in various shapes (animals, cars, trees etc) There will be a whole line of shapes for the bins, so that in each location it will be different and new! When enough plastic bags are thrown inside, a colorful statue will be created.
Hi! My name is Steve and I'm a bunny. I speak for fun and nature. This video will show you how I would like to use the fun theory to help end an ecological problem for me and my animal friends. Using fun to encourage recycling plastic bags, we can brighten peoples days, help animals and reduce the use of plastic world wide. Please take a look and thank you for your time!

Sometimes people forget about bicycles. But cycling could be more funny and attractive mean of transport. Small changes of our ordinary cycling paths could encourage a lot of people to choose bicycle as the main transport mean to go to work, shops or somewhere else. The path should be interactive, interesting and "new" every day. How could the cycling path be transformed? Here are few solutions that can be combined and used in a different places of the path: 1. Changing jokes every day on the board above the path; 2.
